Painting it Forward Cape Town - 16 & 17 June 2018 - Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital
Our 2018 event took place at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital in Rondebosch, Cape Town.
Everyone who spends time at the world-renowned Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital leaves feeling like this is no ordinary hospital.
This healing space takes care of around 250 000 patients each year, most of whom come from exceptionally poor and marginalised communities. Patients come from all over South Africa and sometimes even from greater Africa. A third of the patients are younger than a year old.
Built in Cape Town in 1956, the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital is the first and only stand-alone tertiary hospital in sub-Saharan Africa dedicated entirely to child healthcare. While delivering world-class paediatric treatment and care, it’s important to the hospital that they make as large an impact as possible and equip others to do the same. The hospital is a teaching hospital for the University of Cape Town and provides training to paediatric healthcare professionals from the entire sub-continent. They also conduct ground-breaking research into childhood illnesses that has a global impact.
Our theme this year was:
"Love, Life and Water"
