CHOC’s Alliances

International Alliances and Partnerships

Exposure to childhood cancer programmes, initiatives and organisations around the world has brought many benefits and ensures that CHOC stays on par with international developments and trends. We have learnt much from others, and we are also making significant contributions by modeling great programmes and raising awareness of challenges that children and parents face in middle and low income countries.

This is a group formulated to create a forum that will enable generalist and specialist stakeholders to collaborate in the ongoing planning and development of excellent integrated and coordinated palliative care services to meet the needs of patients, their families and caregivers. CHOC as one of many organisations worked together on the Policy Framework and Strategy for Palliative Care for South Africa which was approved by The National Health Council in 2017.

Just Footprints Foundation

Just Footprints Foundation (JFF) is creating a unique experience for children with life-threatening illnesses, at no cost, at various campsites in the breathtaking beautiful places of South Africa, including the African bush. It’s an encounter that can profoundly change a life, creating a depth of spiritual awareness that brings peace and serenity, even to young children.

Reach for a Dream

Reach for a Dream’s (R4AD) purpose is to encourage children to use their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses. In partnership with CHOC, R4AD’s vision is to continue giving hope to children fighting life-threatening illnesses through the fulfillment of their dreams, and to further help as many children facing these illnesses though national projects such as Camp Sunshine, Queen For A Day, Captain Courage, Show You Care Send A Bear and Jabulani Kingdom Hospital entertaining projects that all function on an ongoing basis
