About

Harare Children's Hospital Trust is dedicated to enriching and transforming the lives of children.

The Trust has supported Harare Children's Hospital through upgrading its buildings, purchasing vital Incubator equipment and funding critical training and research programmes. The Trust is serving the children of Africa by promoting Harare Children's Hospital as a centre of paediatric excellence.

HARARE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

Harare Children’s Hospital was built in1998 with funding support from Canadian and Japanese governments.  A modern, purpose built facility with a capacity of 300 beds, it is the largest, stand alone, children’s hospital in Zimbabwe offering free tertiary level medical and surgical care for in-fants and children from all over the country.  The hospital also provides training in paediatrics for health care professionals and is a teaching hospital of the University of Zimbabwe Medical School.

Unfortunately, the dramatic economic decline Zimbabwe has experienced over the past decade, has resulted in a reduction of government funding for the Children’s Hospital and the health sector in general. Although it has continued to provide a high level of care, the hospital is currently in need of refurbishment and upgrading of its medical equipment. 

THE TRUST

In 2013 a group of concerned healthcare professionals and members of corporate community came together to form the Harare Children’s Hospital Trust.  The aim of the Trust is to raise funds for the refurbishment and re-equipping of the Children’s Hospital and with the longer term goal of developing the Hospital into a paediatric centre of excellence.  Since its inception, the Trust has secured funding and donations of equipment and supplies with a total value in excess of  $1,000,000.
