Reach For A Dream Foundation

For 30 years The Reach For A Dream Foundation (RFAD), has brought hope, joy and healing to South African children. These children between the ages of 3 and 18 years have used their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and leukaemia, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy, kidney failure and blood disorders.
There are countless children and their families in South Africa who are strained emotionally, physically and financially by these life-threatening illnesses. Very little is being done for them. RFAD seeks to alleviate the strain that a life-threatening illness takes on these children and their families by providing these children with an opportunity of realising their dream. RFAD enriches children's lives by making dreams come true and as a result, distracting them from the needles, medication and hospital environment. These young children are under extreme pressure to deal with these medical issues and are in desperate need of our encouragement.
In addition, RFAD offers the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an illness. The impact of a dream is powerful
