A charity project by company Sea Harvest has already donated R1.3m for a variety of projects at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

The company’s Kids for Kids initiative is now in its sixth year. Sea Harvest donates a portion of the sales of selected crumbed fish products.

This year’s donation will help upgrade the hospital’s paediatric intensive care unit (ICU), which is the largest ICU for children in Africa.

Louise Driver, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Trust, says: “There is a dire need to expand the ICU to accommodate up to 39 beds, which includes a 10-bed high care unit for neonatal patients and the establishment of eight isolation cubicles. It is not only the increased amount of beds that is essential, but also the provision of more space around beds to comfortably accommodate critical life-saving equipment. Thanks to donors like Sea Harvest we are able to fund important projects like this that ultimately help save children’s lives.”

Konrad Geldenhuys, Sea Harvest’s sales and marketing director, says they are delighted to be working with the Children’s Hospital Trust.

“So far we are well on our way to reach this year’s target of R300 000,” he says.
