Since 2010, Sea Harvest’s Kids for Kids project has donated a total of R1.8 million to the Children’s Hospital Trust, which advances child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, thanks to the support of its consumers.

The Sea Harvest Kids for Kids initiative, which runs annually from November to February, is now into its seventh year. This year, proceeds from sales of selected Sea Harvest products up until the end of February 2017 will be used to purchase ICU incubators for babies. The Neonatal High Care Unit is planning to purchase four Giraffe Warmers, at a cost of R493 000 each. Aptly named the Giraffe Warmer due to its long ‘neck’, this heater is designed to eliminate the large, overhead heater used to keep babies that are recovering from illness or injury, warm.  “These units make it easier to observe our little patients and perform certain procedures, such as taking X-rays, without moving the baby too much. It operates with fewer alarms and this results in less disturbances to other patients. It can weigh babies, while they are sleeping, with the integrated in-bed scale; furthermore, should a baby need to be resuscitated, all the necessary equipment is on-hand,” says Louise Driver, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Trust.

Sea Harvest Sales and Marketing Director, Konrad Geldenhuys, says: “For the past six years we have been involved with the Children’s Hospital Trust, enabling them to purchase equipment and develop infrastructure that saves lives. This is worth much more than what we can give them. We look forward to helping them raise money for the much-needed Giraffe Warmers.” Consumers have an opportunity to contribute to the new equipment of the hospital by purchasing selected coated Sea Harvest products until 28 February 2017.
