Kulula’s contribution to the Children’s Hospital Trust is valued at R1 million, which consists of air tickets to the value of R500 000 for patients, parents and doctors of the Red Cross Children’s Hospital and a monetary donation of R500 000 to go towards the expansion of the Parents Accommodation facility on the premises of the hospital. The Parents Accommodation provides parents or caregivers with a comfortable place to stay so that they are close to their children who are receiving medical care in the hospital.
Louise Driver, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Trust says, “We are immensely grateful to kulula for coming ‘on board’ with their generous donation and addressing a very real need. The hospital has around 270 inpatients at any given time, so the current Parents Accommodation is far too small to accommodate all those parents needing on-site accommodation to be close to their sick or injured children. After the upgrade the facility will be able to accommodate 120 parents, which is double its current capacity.”
