Our 11 year old patient underwent a tonsillectomy today thanks to Busamed Lowveld private Hospital and Drs Smook (ENT) and Dr Coetzee an anaesthesiologist who conducted his surgery.
This very brave young man had chronic problems with his tonsils for a while, and it was time for it to be removed.

All went well and our young patient was discharged with promises of his favourite food and ice cream from his grandmother… Lucky chap!

Busamed Hospital and Dr’s Smook and Coetzee, you have done a wonderful thing for this young boy today, and we thank you for your generosity and kindness.

Thanks a lot Dr Attie van Wyk for your support once again. You are a scholar and a gentleman…..

4 surgeries done and only 996 to go to our goal of 1000 surgeries for 1000 children.

We are helping children one surgery at a time.

Yesterday turned out to be a very busy day for us at Pediatric care Africa as we had to arrange Doctors visits for a number of children with ailments.

We took this little boy to see Dr Reyneke as he had a long standing ailment that needed medical treatment asap. He was prescribed some medicine which we obtained for him from the pharmacy, and he will be back to see Dr Reyneke in a weeks’ time.

He is a very friendly little boy and we are happy we were able to assist him.

On Wednesday the 14th August we paid our first visit to Magalela squatter camp outside White river on the Hazy view road.

This was our first visit to introduce our NGO to them and to first hand ascertain and discuss their needs, especially regarding the children residing at Magalela.

We ascertained that there is + 90 children living at this squatter camp and that they have no easy access to a clinic or medical treatment for sick children as their nearest clinic is in White river about 10km away. We will continue to assist this community with their medical needs and dietary needs of the children as and when possible

We delivered +- 1200kg food and clothing to the residents at Magalela squatter camp. Most of the clothing they received was a generous clothing donation we in turn received from Katoen.

Very friendly persons living at this squatter camp and we were received with open arms and warm smiles.

Geskiedenis is by Kiaat Privaathospitaal buite Nelspruit gemaak toe hulle hul eerste pro bono-operasie op 'n tweejarige kleutertjie uitgevoer het. Die dogtertjie, wat in pleegsorg is en nie op 'n mediese fonds gesit kan word nie - aangesien haar geboortesertifikaat nie beskikbaar is nie - is op 7 Augustus met pynlike oorprobleme na prof. Ian P Olwoch, 'n spesialis in Otorhinolaryngology, by Kiaat, geneem.
Prof. Olwoch het haar deeglik ondersoek en bevind dat die dogtertjie 'n operasie aan haar regteroor benodig. Met dr. André Hattingh, van Pediatric Care Africa, se hulp het prof. Olwoch en Kiaat hospitaal besluit om die operasie gratis uit te voer. Die kleinding is op Dinsdag 13 Augustus suksesvol geopereer, en haar pleegouers, Jan en Bianca Grobler, het aan 100.5FM bevestig dat sy al reeds herstel en terug is na haar gewone besige self.
"Ons wil Eda Verster en Steven Mashishi van die Kiaat-hospitaal bedank dat hulle alles gereël het vir ons dogtertjie en natuurlik vir hul fantastiese ondersteuning en hulp," het dr. Hattingh gesê.
Mashishi het gesê dat Kiaat hospitaal die besluit geneem het om te help, aangesien hulle graag terug aan die gemeenskap wil gee.
