Rebuilding Africa’s first dedicated Children’s hospital
A remarkable transformation
A once proud institution that provided care to children of all races, fell victim to neglect. Restoring this institution back to its former purpose is our lifes mission.
Help restore this landmark institution
This Durban Hospital was the first facility in all of Africa exclusively dedicated to children. It was built un 1928 by then Durban mayor Mary Siedle, who wanted to take her child for medical treatment but could not find a place. Help us restore this proud African institution to its former glory
The KZN Children’s Hospital is a centre of excellence… funding is desperately needed to ensure that restoration is completed and the dream to offer care to all disadvantaged and vulnerable children is realised.

My vision is for children to have their physiotherapy and other therapy on the beach. I would like the wheelchairs and the beds to be wheeled out there, so I'm going to try build some sort of ramp.
