On Sunday 16 February 2014, AmaTuks partnered with Reach for a dream to make a youngster’s dream come true. Njabulo is a 7 year old from Witbank. He has been diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia, a cancer of the white blood cells.
He dreams of watching a professional football match and he would also like a Blackberry cellphone. On Sunday AmaTuks ensured that his dream comes true and more.
On the day the youngster went into the change room to meet the players. He was a welcome guest ahead of the crunch match. Njabulo was presented with a Signed match ball and an AmaTuks playing jersey.
Njabulo together with his mother and children from Reabetswe le Ditsala children’s projects, volunteers from Reach For A Dream, children from Good Hope Centre, London Passion and employees of Pick n Pay Soshanguve were hosted at the Dreamers’ corner. The only thing on Njabulo’s mind was getting on the field with all the PSL players.
Tebogo Monyai (Captain) and Buhle Mkhwanazi (Vice Captain) were present at the end of the match to meet with Njabulo and all the kids at the dreamer’s corner. Tebogo Donated a signed jerseys and R500 each to Njabulo, Reabetswe and London Passion.
The dreamers’ corner is a section of the stadium that is set aside to accommodate dreamers and their families at AmaTuks Home Matches. A dreamer is a child living with a life threatening illness who visits AmaTuks through Reach For A Dream.
The idea came about after hosting our first dreamer Sibusiso and will be a constant at all AmaTuks home matches.
As AmaTuks we continue to have a positive impact in the lives of our communities and this is one such initiative.
