“A well thought through, comprehensive, innovative and creative CSI programme can become a competitive differentiator for a company. A good CSI programme is no longer a nice-to-have, but rather a critical component of business success.” ~https://nextgeneration.co.za/
In 2016 a group of registered doctors in the private sector decided to launch a Mandela day initiative to honour the legacy of former president Nelson Mandela. The hope was that this small gesture would change the lives of a few people who primarily depend on the heavy burdened South African state hospitals for relieve.
Since 2016, this initial one-week charity drive has expanded into a full-blown Non-Profit Company. In 2020 alone, over 239 patients have been given the opportunity to a new, fully functioning life.
OHH recruits hospitals, surgeons, anaesthetists, and paramedici to provide free surgery and post-operative care, and also takes care of all the other arrangements and payments of extra expenses.
The main objective of OHH has always been to improve the lives of as many patients as possible, by providing life-changing surgery, be it big or small. The rapid growth in patients helped over the last few years is a testimony to OHH’s commitment to this much-needed cause, and by continuing their work, many South African’s lives have been changed for the better.

“I have the highest admiration for the initiative of the group of young professionals who have founded Operation Healing Hands. All of them are experts in their own fields of medicine, and they are devoting their time and expertise to help fellow South Africans in dire need. In a situation where public services are stretched to the limits, the efforts of these professionals to treat patients at no cost are remarkable. They are indeed rising to the challenge of Nelson Mandela to put reconciliation and nation-building into practice.” ~ Professor Piet Meiring Emeritus Professor of Theology, University of Pretoria & Member of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission
