Heart2Hand

Itโ€™s not pleasant being in hospital, more so if youโ€™re a child. While providing a crucial service, the paediatric wards in many state-run hospitals in South Africa lack an aesthetically-appealing environment. With Heart2Hand, we create a nurturing setting that encourages healing by installing new flooring, re-painting the ward, putting up new curtains or painting child-friendly murals. We have already created cheerful environments for little ones at the Maitland Cottage Childrenโ€™s Orthopaedic Hospital in Cape Town and the Edendale Hospital in Kwazulu-Natal, and hope to roll out Heart2Hand to other parts of the country.
