Dearest Lerato & Staff

On the 17th of December, Lana Marks, the ambassador of the U.S. and the professional marines came to the hospital to handout gifts to all the children. This in theme of Christmas and the thought of helping others. Thank you so much for your visit and we would love to see you again next year.

On the 12 of December all the volunteers from FOCHA got dressed up in theme of Christmas in order to give all the children an amazing Christmas Parade. Besides the volunteers, petting zoo, fire fighters, father Christmas and other people joined to make this day unforgettable.

Last Thursday, 12 December 2019, was an important day for the Friends of the Children’s Hospital Association. The Christmas Parade is a special day for all the children who are staying in the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

We would like to thank ABSA Bank for the wonderful donations who gave a lot of joy to all the children!

Gay Lagardien
Our Acting CEO retreated into retirement this month after serving FOCHA for five years in different capacities, first as bookkeeper, then finance manager and over the last two years as CEO.
Gay is the kind of person that you meet and after five minutes feels like you know her for years. We had a great working relationship and this allowed the team to deliver quality services to our clients. She showed great leadership and tenacity to guide FOCHA through a difficult period where we had to manage our organisation without the backing of a major donor.
Thank you Gay for the opportunity to have worked with you, we will surely miss you.
Enjoy your life of leisure 🙏

From the GB, staff and volunteers at FOCHA

Today “THE FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION” remembers the enormous contribution our Patron Chester Williams made by influencing the lives of our patients at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. His passion and commitment to drive the FOCHA agenda, to reduce anxiety and to make their stay in hospital less traumatic, truly impacted the lives of sick children. Together with his wife Maria they visited and played with patients, did radio interviews to promote FOCHA’s work and attended events to share their passion and commitment to our vision and mission. Our movement will surely miss him and wish Maria, his family and the children well.

As the world reflects on Nelson Mandela’s legacy, we give thanks for his life, his leadership and his devotion to humanity and to humanitarian causes.
Marie Teacher spent her #67minutes with The Friends of the Children's Hospital Association and had an amazing time playing with some of the little patients. She intends to spend a lot more time volunteering at this hospital in the future. What an absolute honor it was to be able to serve others. We encourage you to do the same and get involved in your community and assist those in need. Every bit counts, whether it's Mandela Day or not ❤️ #mandela #madibaday #2019 #help #kids #children #southafrica #capetown

ArtLab Creative Digital Printing - Custom Wallpapers - Textile Printing

We rise by lifting others.

A beautiful message sent to us from The Friends of the Children's Hospital Association -

"Dear Management and Staff of ArtLab

Thank you so much for your wonderful donation of pretty fabric. Your gift is much appreciated and will be used to make new aprons and tablecloths. Our staff and volunteers move around the hospital providing refreshments to the families attending the clinics so new aprons and tablecloths for the trollies will be splendid! Thank you for your support and thank you for showing such kindness.

Each child deserves to be happy after the traumatic experience of hospitalisation. We, therefore rely on the support of the community to fulfil this wish.

Your donation is extremely important to us and most especially to our children at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. We need and value your continuing support. Thank you once again."

Yours sincerely

FOCHA Management

Heart 2 Heart

In partnership with the The Friends of the Children's Hospital Association we hosted our Annual Mother’s Day brunch at Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, inviting and honoring 60 mother’s (most of whom have been at the hospital with their children for months with no familial support as they come from outside Cape Town).

As usual our Heart2heart community pulled together and we were able to provide refreshments, gift bags, a mini pamper session for each mom and a WHOLE lot of HEART!

A huge thank you to our guest speaker Lee-Anne Van Renen and everyone else involved in making today’s event a huge success 🥰👏🏻
