The hospital, which will be named Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital, will provide health care to children in Southern Africa regardless of their ability to pay.

As a symbol of their support, all the members of U2 signed one of The Edge's acoustic guitars for Legacy of Hope. Bono's inscription read, "There's no them there's only us!"

"We are truly honored that U2 would show their support with this wonderful gesture," says Eric Gast, CEO/Executive Producer of the Legacy of Hope Foundation, in a statement. "I'm moved that Bono, in his current state, would have the resolve to help support Mr. Mandela's dream of free and accessible healthcare for the children of Southern Africa."  No word yet on what the group plans to do with the guitar.

Bono was injured in a cycling accident last November. The frontman has largely kept a low profile as he continues to rehab and prepare for U2's sold-out iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour, which kicks off May 14 in Vancouver, BC.
