MiTek South Africa and Builders were on-site at the new Surgeons for Little Lives children’s ward being built at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital.

Builders were awarded the contract to supply and erect the roof structure, with MiTek supplying the Ultra-Span components ,sundries, design and inspections. MiTek are honoured to have been involved in the sponsorship, as this new facility will make a huge difference in the lives of so many sick and underprivileged children.

Launched in May 2015, Surgeons for Little Lives is a registered non-profit organisation, with a powerful commitment to saving the lives of very sick children. They are making it possible for these children and their families to receive a standard of care that matches the standard of skill of their surgeons.

Surgeons for Little Lives is run by a small group of Paediatric Surgeons, and ordinary people, passionate about uplifting the lives of less fortunate children needing life changing surgery.

It was started with the overriding objective of raising the level of care given to patients in the Paediatric Surgery wards in state hospitals, in the Greater Gauteng area, to world class standards.

Freeman Munjoma designed the roof structure and Nkopodi (Jonas) Kgofelo assisted the Builders team with on-site training for assembly of the Ultra-Span light gauge steel roof trusses.

There will be an update on this project in the near future. Make sure to follow this project on MiTek’s Social Media pages!
