Mandela's dream is to make world-class healthcare available to the children of SA through a state-of-the-art facility - the Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital. This Trust honours his life-long commitment to them. Mandela said this hospital will be "a credible demonstration of the commitment of African leaders to place the rights of children at the forefront". This addresses a great need as there are only 4 hospitals in Africa serving nearly 450 million children. Millions of them suffer life-threatening illnesses with little or no chance of receiving the specialised care they need. This 200-bed academic and paediatric referral facility built in Jhb will serve children across SA. No child will be turned away due to inability to pay. Doors will open in 2015.
