Children at the Maitland Cottage Children’s Orthopaedic Hospital now have a brighter, more cheerful environment to rest and recuperate, after corporates and volunteers joined forces with NPO, Blue Sky Society Trust (BSST), for Project #Heart2Hand.
There were heart-warming scenes at the facility this morning when the new R80 000 upgrade was unveiled.
Spearheaded by BSST, the Lion Match Company’s subsidiary company NSP Unsgaard and their brand Cherubs , and the Little Optimist Trust, Project #Heart2Hand was a month-long undertaking that gave parts of the hospital a makeover.
Maitland Cottage Children’s Hospital performs hundreds of life-changing operations each year.
The little patients range in age from birth to 15 years and they are treated for all forms of bone disease and disabilities. The hospital also treats children who are injured in motor vehicle accidents.
Certain areas within the hospital required some TLC so the #Heart2Hand team worked its magic, replacing flooring, providing new curtains and painting a happy, joyful mural on an outside wall to create a positive surrounding that serves as an instant ‘pick-me-up’ thereby assisting with recovery and recuperation.
