About this grant
The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust was established in 2009 to initiate, promote, and support the provision of pediatric healthcare, training, and research through the establishment of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital. The vision of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital is to be a state-of-the-art specialist pediatric academic tertiary referral hospital providing child-centered, best quality medical services to the children of southern Africa, irrespective of their social and economic status. Mott has previously supported the hospital project through a grant to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund to undertake a feasibility study on the establishment of the hospital. This grant will contribute to the construction costs of the hospital, expected to start operating fully at the end of 2016.
