Make Money Mondays, Evergreen Content

RMB and a paediatric surgeon from Baragwanath came together to save little lives

(Click here to visit "Surgeons for Little Lives".)

We started a charity called Surgeons for Little Lives… All leading children’s hospitals around the world have immense financials strains…

Professor Jerome Loveland, Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital

This funding falls outside of our CSI programme… We had flexibility… we looked for organisations where we have alignment… those surgeons dedicate themselves to Baragwanath … it’s really impactful. You can see them change and save lives…

Gareth Armstrong, Rand Merchant Bank

Some companies and institutions do well.

Then there those that do well, and good.

For the next few weeks, The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield will interview someone from a business that makes a difference as part of the end-of-year “Make a Difference Mondays” feature.

“Make a Difference Mondays” is all about businesses – no matter how big, or small - that are socially aware and doing good work.

It’s about businesses that are innovative in the way they are making a positive difference in the world; perhaps even sacrificing profit to do so.

This week Ray White (in for Whitfield) interviewed Professor Jerome Loveland (Head of Paediatric Surgery at Wits and Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital).

White also spoke to Gareth Armstrong (Corporate Finance Transactor at Rand Merchant Bank).

Loveland and Amstrong spoke about how the two of them came together to make a difference and save lives.

Listen to the interviews in the audio below (and scroll down for more quotes from it).

We [Loveland and Armstrong] share the same vision… It’s definitely a long-term thing…

Gareth Armstrong, Rand Merchant Bank

It’s absolutely eye-opening… It makes you realise where help is needed… You can actually see the difference it makes…

Gareth Armstrong, Rand Merchant Bank

There’s a misconception that healthcare in our public hospitals is universally poor… We know we provide a world-class surgical service… It’s around bringing ancillary care up a notch… It’s not about facilities… our focus is around systems… we’re coping… we certainly can do things many times better…

Professor Jerome Loveland, Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital
