"I applaud the sterling work that the Groote Schuur Neonatal Unit does. As a professional sportsman and coach, I understand the amount of dedication and skill that is required to perform difficult tasks like looking after extremely premature or sick babies. As a father I understand how the doctors and nurses give hope to the parents of these children who otherwise would not have survived.
I fully support the campaign to build and even bigger and better facility to improve the quality and scope of care even further. In cricket every run and and every wicket counts, but let's not forget that more importantly, every baby counts. "
