Over R300 000 has been raised for the construction of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital in Parktown, Johannesburg, for the Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture Gala Dinner last night at the Sandton Convention Centre.

The hospital is expected to open its doors in 2014, and it is hoped that more than 655 specialist doctors and nurses will be recruited.

South Africa has only one pediatric hospital, the Red Cross Children’s Hospital in Cape Town.
