REACH FOR A DREAM (article first published : 2006-05-20)

A new type of Medical Specialists will soon be visiting the wards of hospitals countrywide, dispensing large doses of laughter to patients and staff.

Reach for a Dream fulfils the dreams of children facing life-threatening illness. The Foundation fulfils on average three dreams a day nationally and has announced its latest project aimed at bringing joy and happiness to an even greater number of children facing life-threatening illnesses.

Reaching over 6,300 children last year through national projects such as Group Outings, Camp Sunshine, Queen For A Day and Captain Courage, and based on a world wide trend of using humour and laughter to improve health, Reach For A Dream will introduce Jabulani the Dreamer to children throughout homes and hospitals in South Africa.

Jabulani the Dreamer will entertain children facing long periods in hospitals and help lighten the serious side of the hospital, bringing support, fun and laughter by providing entertainment in various forms.

Reach for a Dream is calling on any interested applicants to contact them if they feel they can add value to this incredible project.

Are you able, and have experience in improvising and entertaining? Do you have the people skills to listen, be sensitive and caring? Would you be able to work in a hospital environment? If you do, call Judith on 011 781 0133 to receive a questionnaire that will need to be filled out and returned no later than June 5.

The Foundation will recruit part time entertainers in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, East London and Bloemfontein.
