Africa Health is delighted to present the Official Charity for Africa Health 2019, The Reach for a Dream Foundation.

Proceeds from the Africa Health 2019 conferences will be donated to the charity on Day 2 (29 May 2019) at the Africa Health Exhibition.

About the Charity

The Reach For A Dream Foundation fulfils the dreams of children who are fighting a life-threatening illness between the ages of 3 and 18 years old.  The Foundation believes that through dream fulfilment, children are inspired to fight their illness.  The core focus is to inspire hope in these sick children and to offer support to them and their families.

No dream too big or too small.  We aspire to ensure that every child fighting a life-threatening illness has the opportunity to become part of the Foundation, not only by enjoying the power of a dream, but to also be part of all other projects that we offer.

The Foundation fulfils 4 to 6 dreams per day, across the country.  As a 30 year old organisation, we have successfully fulfiled over 18,000 individual dreams to date. Annually the Foundation positively impacts the life's of approximately 40,000 children through all our projects, which include camps, boy and girl based activities, outings and in hospital care programs.
