Welcome to Wings & Wishes

WHO WE ARE

Wings & Wishes is a not-for-profit organization governed by volunteer trustees. We are dedicated to transporting critically ill children to receive the life-saving medical treatment they need.

The program is funded primarily through donations and is supported by many individuals, organizations and volunteers in South Africa. As word of the program spreads, requests for flights and bus tickets are a daily occurrence and we are now assisting at least one child a day.

WHAT WE DO 

Every day, children are diagnosed with life threatening illnesses. Help is often available at specialized government hospitals, but for many children the treatment they so desperately need is out of reach because transport is either not affordable or readily available. Wings & Wishes provides transport opportunities (flight or road) to a suitable medical facility for these critically ill children.
