B. Braun Medical South Africa has been involved with the following initiatives for many years. Marang House, provides South Africa's seriously ill children from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a stable home environment that enables their likelihood of full recovery and improves the chance of fulfilling their dreams.
For children suffering from the chronic implication associated with renal failure, diabetes or other serious illnesses life appears to bring one thunderstorm after another. For the unfortunate, whose parents cannot afford consistant medical care, supervision and a suitable environment, the likelihood of overcoming this serious illness is minimal at best.
It is amidst these storms that Marang House was founded in 1998 by the late Dr. Pieter Ernest as a means for increasing the number of fortunated offering a ray of hope and sunshine for South Africa's seriously ill children . Along - standing physician in Northcliff, Dr. Ernest realised that for children with chronic conditions requiring long - term care, institution such as government hospitals are not able to supply the ideal recovery environment that a stable home can. In addition to meeting each child's unique health and wellness needs, Marang House also helps ensure that each child's education, as well their sense of friendship and fun are less impeded by their affliction. There is currently one house in Northcliff which provides care to children between the ages of four and fourteen from the various hospitals in the Johannesburg region.
