Princess Haya is Patron of WSPCCA
HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, United Nations Messenger of Peace, has accepted to become the global patron for the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre for Africa (WSPCCA). WSPCCA is a charity organisation that facilitates life-saving heart surgery for underprivileged children from across Africa who suffer from congenital heart conditions.
Princess Haya said, “The WSPCCA is an organisation that reflects the values and beliefs that I hold dear. In addition, Africa is a part of the world that I have visited often and have come to love,” She went on saying, “As with addressing hunger, paediatric cardiac care is an area where a real and tangible difference can be made if the will to do so can be married together with resources and skill. And it is to this extent that I am proud to become officially involved with the WSPCCA.”
April 2008 is when Princess Haya’s involvement with the WSPCCA began. She first visited the centre as part of a legacy tour with President Nelson Mandela to raise awareness of paediatric cardiac health in Africa.
