A magical room has been created specifically for children with life-threatening diseases at Steve Biko Academic Hospital.
Reach for a Dream, in partnership with kulula.com, opened the Dream Room at the hospital’s Oncology Clinic yesterday. The initiative will make the stay of regular patients as comfortable as possible and provide them with a pleasant space away from home.
The facility, which opened yesterday, has been painted in colourful hues of blues and greens with touches of yellow and red. It has drawings of planes and clouds on the walls and ceiling. The launch was lively with Disney character books, a TV, couches and a PS3 PlayStation to keep the children occupied.
