Tygerberg Children’s Hospital

We share a vision of a child-friendly hospital, internationally recognized for its clinical excellence in providing specialist medical and surgical care to babies and children and its ability to optimize holistic health care to all children within South Africa. The Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust was set up to improve the care of babies and children who are treated at the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital.

The Trust raises life-saving funds to upgrade facilities and buy technologically advanced medical equipment. Through our development projects, we aim to create an environment that is in tune with the needs of the children we treat, as well as being a welcoming space for their parents and caregivers. The Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust partners with the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital, which is dedicated to caring for children and newborn babies, within the framework of the larger Tygerberg Academic Hospital. Supporters of the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Trust have helped to give thousands of children a better quality of life.

Through the 2Feet4TB initiative, Neal Stacey aims to inspire hope in TB sufferers across South Africa – educating them about the possibility of a full
recovery by taking the correct medication and proper nutrition. Neal explains that TB is not just a ‘poor man’s disease’. “This is not just a concern for poor communities but affects everyone since we are an interconnected society. We share our working space with different people from different socioeconomic backgrounds, for example.” He adds: “TB has long-term health effects. The disease has several social consequences including decreased worker productivity and increased poverty. Those who develop TB still face major discrimination from employers, friends and family. Yet, despite the health crisis posed by TB the disease is neglected.” Neal has pledged to participate in a minimum of one full marathon, ultra-marathon and/or road cycling race (as per the race calendar of Run & Cycling South Africa) every month, in each of South Africa’s nine provinces. There are 148 events in a calendar year. “I’ve pledged to participate in every marathon, ultra and cycling event as per the ASA & CSA road calendar between 2017 and 2022. For every kilometre covered in a
specified road running or cycling event, a sponsored food parcel will be donated to TB sufferers who take their prescribed medication every day, under the supervision of the Direct Observation Treatment(DOT).” Neal’s goal is to help 1,400 TB patients with their recovery.
Neal is the brand ambassador for recovery massage gel, MYO2 Recovery Gel and actively promotes the product as he continues with his intense training programme.
In addition to collecting food parcels, Neal has initiated Seeds4Life (the collection of seed packets and subsequent germination and planting at various food gardens and schools such as the Masizakhe Food Garden, Homestead for Street Children and Symphony Primary School) and Blankets4Life – the collection of blankets for the Homestead for Street Children and TB patients on Mandela Day.

If you are in a position to help, please email Neal at
