Mosa talking about renal failure and why she founded Hospie Toys. As someone who spend a great deal of her life in hospital, she knows how bored kids get bored if they do not have something to do.
And she stated that when a kids are busy, they get better sooner.

Then came “The Stones” who sang angelic melodies that soothed the audience. Their opening song with these words “Sangena thina kulomhlaba sinibulisa” was definitely a very welcome greeting

They sing acapella. I definitely think that they are South Africa’s next big group.If you were to hear them, you will think it’s The Soil amplified.

Mosa & Caroline talking about organ donation and renal failure

Mosa was diagnosed with renal failure when she was 14 years old. She needed a kidney and liver transplant as her liver and kidneys were not working. She was on dialysis for 2 years until she finally got a liver and kidney from a donor in Cape Town. Right after getting her transplant she was admitted to ICU for 7 months and of those, she was in a comma for 4 months.

SAM_2443
Caroline had kidney failure when she was 6 years old and she got a kidney transplant in 2008. She wrote her matric final exams in a hospital bed. Her brother also got diagnosed with kidney failure and he passed away. She got emotional as she was telling her story as it bought back sad memories.
