Many children are dying because transport is a barrier to accessing life-saving medical treatment.

Every day children are diagnosed with life threatening illnesses. Whilst they can be treated at specialized government hospitals, the cost of the transport to these facilities is simply not affordable for many families. Where the treatment required is not available locally, and when the parents cannot afford the costs, we arrange and provide flights or bus tickets to a suitable medical facility.

32000 Voyager Miles is what we need to fund a flight for a child to reach life saving treatment.

With your donations, we promise to provide compassionate support immediately, with minimal bureaucracy, whilst maintaining the highest levels of integrity for critically ill children and their families. Your donations will help give wings to a wish for a healthy life.



Your donation of funds towards travel costs and essential provisions will make a significant difference in the lives of these children and their families.
