For 22 years the Reach For A Dream Foundation 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 the effects of life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and leukaemia, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy, kidney failure and Blood disorders.
Reach For A Dream recently began to recognise cardiac disorders as a potential terminal illness and, thanks to the wonderful work that Silca at Reach For A Dream does, we’ve managed to give many of our Foundation children a dream to help them alleviate the strain that a life-threatening illness takes on these children and their families.
The partnership started with the heart-warming story of little Hezikiel Rangonza who came to the WSPCCA from Zimbabwe in 2008, and was unfortunately in an inoperable stage of his disorder—needing a total heart and lung transplant. Lynda contacted the Reach for a Dream Foundation and they generously granted him the wish of a Sandton City shopping spree, before he returned to Zimbabwe with his mom.
From then on Reach for a Dream committed to grant every sponsored child at the WSPCF a dream of their choice.
From the WSPCF and our children, we say a HEARTY thank you!
