Welcome to the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust

Welcome to the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust, the fundraising arm of the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital.

At Tygerberg Children’s Hospital we share a vision of a child-friendly hospital, internationally recognized for its clinical excellence in providing specialist medical and surgical care to babies and children and its ability to optimize holistic health care to all children within South Africa.

The Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust was set up to improve the care of babies and children who are treated at the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital.

The Trust raises life-saving funds to upgrade facilities and buy technologically advanced medical equipment.

Through our development projects, we aim to create an environment that is in tune with the needs of the children we treat, as well as being a welcoming space for their parents and caregivers.

The Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust partners with the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital, which is dedicated to caring for children and newborn babies, within the framework of the larger Tygerberg Academic Hospital.

Supporters of the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust have helped to give thousands of children a better quality of life.
