Metropolitan Health donation to help reduce burn-related mortality amongst children

Happy Human Rights Day! South Africa has a Bill of Rights that we can be proud off. The implementation of those rights are not what we have hoped for, but it makes me so happy when I hear about initiatives which took care of the rights of our children. Giving them the best medical care there is. The Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital (CHBAH) Paediatric Burns Unit looks after young burn victims. Metropolitan Health has donated a cheque of R400 000 this week to help with sepsis related mortality, made possible by Surgeons for Little Lives.
