Financial services group Barclays Africa is supporting a global awareness campaign aimed at raising funds towards the building of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital. The hospital is a unique project in that the capital funding is being raised entirely from donors.

Tomorrow is the Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture Day in aid of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust. The day is an extension of the Human Spirit as soccer and rugby, for the first time, share a stage on the same day in honour of a great man.

As the official team sponsor of the soccer and rugby national teams - the Springboks and Bafana Bafana - Absa is proud to be part of this historic day.

In keeping with the spirit of the Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture day, people that want to contribute towards the hospital’s building costs are encouraged to do so at Absa and Barclays branches in South Africa, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and the United Kingdom. Donations can also be made online or through EFT payments to the following account:

  • Account name: Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust,
  • Absa account number: 9285303224.
  • Branch Code: 632005.

All administration fees have been waived so that the Nelson Mandela Children’s Trust is paid the full donated amount.
