The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital
Safika is a major donor of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust which raised R1 billion to realise Nelson Mandela’s dream of creating a state-of-the-art, specialised paediatric facility to serve the children of Southern Africa.
The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital is situated in Parktown, Johannesburg. It treated its first patient in June 2017 and has subsequently opened several dedicated units, including radiology, paediatric intensive care, paediatric nephrology and paediatric cardiology.
Safika’s chief executive, Moss Ngoasheng, is a trustee of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust, a member of the hospital’s audit and risk and fundraising committees, and serves on the board of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital’s Non-Profit Company.
