Mandela and Bill Clinton raise funds

By Odette Ismail

According to the Cape Argus, Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton have joined together to raise funds for African children with heart problems by offering “tea with Mandela”. On Thursday, former US president Clinton said that no child should die without the chance to live his or her dreams. Clinton joined Mandela for the launch of the ‘Priceless Moments’ campaign, for the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre for Africa at Sunninghill Hospital in Sandton. The campaign wishes to raise R80 million for the unit which will treat children with heart problems all over Africa. Six people can bid from November 6 to have tea with Mandela and Walter Sisulu’s widow, Albertina. Clinton and his wife Hillary agreed to pay for two operations.
