Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital
The Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital is the only specialist hospital in Southern Africa dedicated entirely to the care of sick children and children’s health. The Hospital is a public tertiary and secondary level referral hospital, which also provides critical training for medical professionals, and performs research into childhood diseases. Seriously ill patients from all over the continent are referred here for medical intervention from the dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to heal and cure. A third of the patients are under the age of 1 year old and sadly spend weeks or months in their hospital beds.
Since 1994, The Children’s Hospital Trust has been the independent fundraising arm, when the Hospital was threatened with closure due to the lack of funding. Since inception, the Trust has supported the Hospital through upgrading its buildings, purchasing vital equipment and funding critical training and research programmes.
The Out-patient Burns Clinic
The RE/MAX Foundation, together with RE/MAX Broker/Owners, Managers, Sales Associates and Administrative personnel have set a goal to raise R250,000.00 towards the upgrade and expansion of the existing Out-patient Burns Clinic at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.
The current facilities are in dire need of an upgrade as the facility is old, worn and too small for the almost 150 patients that require attention day. Up to 10 children are attended to at a time with 3 per examination bench, which is not only traumatic for the children but unhygienic and unsafe as well.
Their aim is to create a more comfortable environment for the children who are going through a painful and scary process.

The Breatheasy Tracheostomy & Ventilation Homecare Programme
Children with severe breathing difficulties require tracheostomies and/or permanent ventilation. This programme provides the patients with the essential tracheostomy and home ventilation equipment. The families are extensively trained to care for their children at home. In February 2013, the RE/MAX Foundation donated R 85,000.00 to procure a ventilator for a young boy, Yaqeen Siddiqi.
Parents Accommodation Upgrade
The existing facility, situated on the grounds of the Hospital, offers parents and caregivers the opportunity to be near their sick children. Due to the increase in demand, there is a critical need to increase the capacity and upgrade the out-dated facility to house more and more parents requiring a place to stay whilst their children are being treated. Daily parental support has proven to result in quicker recovery and shorter periods of stay for the young patients.
In May 2014, the RE/MAX Foundation donated R 100,000.00 towards the upgrade

The Sporting Chance Development Foundation is a registered Non Profit and Public Benefit Organisation. As sport breaks down the barriers of generations, cultures, race, gender and income levels, Sporting Chance was formed to use sport to positively impact the lives of children in South Africa. Today, Sporting Chance has grown to become one of the leading sports coaching and development organisations in South Africa.
Their goals and objectives are to provide opportunities for sporting achievement and personal development for as many children as possible as they are empowered to become competent, confident and responsible citizens of South African society.
Their mission is to provide the children of South Africa with a Sporting Chance.
One of their key objectives is to identify and nurture raw and natural talent. Once the talent is identified, these youth, from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, will be given the opportunity to pursue their sports dreams and reach their potential, based on a solid education foundation with optimal sports coaching and guidance.
The RE/MAX Foundation recently offered bursaries to two young individuals who will be followed regularly through their schooling and sports careers.

Reach For A Dream
Reach for A Dream fulfills the dreams of children between the ages of 3 and 18 who have been diagnosed as having a life-threatening illness. No child should live without hope and for these children, the magic of childhood may be lost in the emotional, physical and financial strain of dealing with their illness.
Reach for A Dream tries to alleviate some of this strain (which often affects the whole family), by creating a difference environment for the child – one that is not focused on his/her illness. We would like children to find their laughter again and herein find the strength to live beyond their illnesses.
RE/MAX of Southern Africa and the RE/MAX Foundation have, together with all the Broker Owners, Sales Associates and Support Staff, donated in excess of R 7,000,000.00 to this organisation over the past 8 years.
