HOPE Cape Town’s footprint has dramatically grown since the first contact and opening of the G7 iThemba Ward at Tygerberg Children’s Hospital in 2001.

Today, we are actively supporting more than 200 000 people annually through medical care, counselling and social services, training and development, education and empowerment in various township clinics in the Western Cape, at Container Village Blikkiesdorp and at HOPE Cape Town’s headquarters at The Nex-Indawo Yethu Campus in Delft.



For more than 20 years HOPE Cape Town has provided services and run programmes at Tygerberg Hospital. Located in Parow, Cape Town, the hospital acts as a teaching hospital in conjunction with the University of Stellenbosch’s Health Science Faculty. Tygerberg Hospital is the largest hospital in the Western Cape and the second largest hospital in South Africa. 

HOPE Cape Town’s first contact with Tygerberg Childrens Hospital was in 1999 and the relationship was solidified in 2001 when the first dedicated ward for the tertiary care of HIV positive children, the HOPE G7 Ithemba Ward was opened.

Today the ‘HOPE for Babies’ programme which forms part of our Cycle of HOPE concept, supports mothers as part of the Tygerberg Hospital First 1 000 Days Campaign and during the first 2 years of the child’s life. 

The ‘HOPE to Home’ programme in Tygerberg Hospital’s paediatric wards offers vital support to children and their caregivers as they make the transition from hospital to home.  In many cases treatment and medications must continue for the children as outpatients in a community health clinic setting.
