On 18 July 2019 Bergman Ross and Partners Radiologists. participated in our very 1st Nelson Mandela day initiative. Between staff and doctors, we managed to raise funds in addition to receiving donations, such as Teddy bears, sweets, books, toys, clothing etc.
A total of 80 party packs were produced and distributed to the children at Tygerberg Hospital School and Maitland Cottage Home. These packs were filled with chips, juices, sweets, chocolates and a toy for either a girl or a boy
The teddy bears collected were given to the Children’s Cancer Unit at Tygerberg Hospital.
We also delivered Coco Pops cereal to the Maitland Cottage Home which was such a treat for the children, as they normally only get porridge.
The donations of clothing we collected were given to Maitland Cottage Home to the children who do not have much clothing.
These are issued to the children when they leave the hospital.
There is an Orthopaedic Children’s Unit on the premises and the nursing staff will provide the clothing to the children according to their individual needs as some of them have lost limbs and the clothing will need to be adapted to each child.
A big thank you to one of our suppliers, River glade, who furnished us with Linen Savers and Bandages. We also supplied these to the Maitland Cottage Home.
It was such a heart-warming experience to see the faces of the children when they received their party packs and toys.
A special Thank You to all the Staff and Doctors that contributed to this great cause!! Hopefully next year we will get even more donations and be able to give back even more of these special children.
Remember that you have made a huge impact in the kids’ lives with your selfless acts of kindness and generosity. Each and every contribution is appreciated.
Thank you again.
