Since 1988, the Reach For A Dream Foundation has brought hope, joy and healing to countless South African children between the ages of 3 and 18. These children have used their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and leukaemia, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, renal failure and various blood disorders.
Reach For A Dream seeks to alleviate the strain that a life-threatening illness places on these children and their families by providing the children with the opportunity to realise their dream. Reach For A Dream 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 their illnesses and are in desperate need of our encouragement. Reach For A Dream offers the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an illness.
