Healthcare organisations make sure that people in need, have access to the right kind of care so they have the best quality of life; these are the ones to follow in 2023.


South Africa (17 January 2023) – The Good Things Guy team has been working on these charity lists since the start of the pandemic in 2020. They were created as tools to help people find help or offer it to causes close to their hearts. Over the years, the demand for these lists has grown, and today, we are excited to share our healthcare list for 2023.

Our charity list was usually one long one, but we have found, with the help of insightful readers, that one list is too much to work through. This year we are splitting the list into various categories. This list features all the healthcare organisations we have featured over the years and can vouch for.

If we have missed an organisation or charity, please email tyler@goodthingsguy.com, and we will add it soonest; kindly supply the relevant links as well as which province they work in, the NPO/NGO/NPC registration details and a brief description of what the organisation does.

Please note, this is a working list, so keep sending through your charities, and we will keep adding them! If you are looking for mental health organisations, we have a separate list here.
