The foundation said it remained determined to fulfill the wishes of as many terminally-ill South African children as possible.
Sick youngsters between the ages of three and 18 years have been encouraged to submit their life’s desires and dreams to the organisation.
The foundation’s Sian Gutstadt said sponsors realised the importance of keeping children’s dreams alive.
“People are giving less, budget have been cut in half. Things have been difficult, but there are a lot of good people out there, who will continue to give to good causes. That’s one of the upturns; that there are a lot of good people,” said Gutstadt.
