Thousands of children will have better health as Hope Park dream becomes a reality

Hope Park children’s health campus in Munsieville, South Africa, is now up and running, transforming the health prospects of over 15,000 children and young people. For more than a century, Munsieville children have suffered poor health and low life-expectancy. Many have struggled to access even basic health services often subjected to risky ‘remedies’ from traditional healers. Now they have easy access to a range of health and well-being services without equal in South African townships. Hope Park is more than a stand-alone clinic - it is an integrated facility with a network of health and well-being practitioners, working together with a commitment to give every child the opportunity to grow into a healthy, productive adult. Hope Park was made possible by the support of The Property Race Day and has separate facilities for infant health, child health and teenage health, a dedicated child nutrition centre, provided by Norton Rose Fulbright and a multi-purpose children’s education and support centre.
