Who wants to be a millionaire this summer? With LottoStar’s Summer of Millions competition with 947 you could win a share of R1 Million in cash, daily, for you and charity.
In the spirit of giving back and changing lives, for the next 3 weeks you will be raising funds for Carte Blanche Making a Difference Trust which will go towards renovating and upgrading paediatric and neonatal units or facilities across South Africa.
Every child’s life is precious, therefore, they have a right to basic health care. However, in South Africa, there are too many kids without access to proper healthcare.
Children from disadvantaged backgrounds have no choice but to wait long periods before receiving adequate health and life-changing procedures which in turn leads to long-term complications. Due to such, children and their families have no choice but to wait up to one and a half years to receive treatment.
The aim of Carte Blanche Making a Difference Trust is to shorten the waiting period of children awaiting life-changing surgeries. In most cases, children wait one and a half years for surgery which results in long-term complications due to lack of facilities or facilities not being in great conditions for use.
Furthermore, Carte Blanche Making a Difference Trust uses the donations to refurbish those facilities and provide new equipment.
There are currently two paediatric admissions or trauma units in South Africa. One is in Sebokeng, in the South of Johannesburg, and the other is in Tygerberg Children’s Hospital, in the Western Cape.
The organization has medical training programmes that are linked with medical universities where graduate doctors train and develop their skills.
