Parents cannot afford constant medical care
For children suffering from the chronic illnesses, life appears to bring one trauma after another.
For the unfortunate, whose parents cannot afford constant medical care, supervision and a suitable environment, the likelihood of overcoming chronic illness is minimal at best. For the fortunate who are relegated to a daily routine of testing, dialysis and the uncertainty surrounding an organ transplant, hope is often a hard thing to muster. It was upon seeing this trauma Marang House was founded in 1998, a ray of hope and sunshine for South Africa's seriously ill children.
In addition to meeting each child’s unique health and wellness needs, Marang House also helps ensure that each child’s education, as well as their sense of friendship and fun are less impeded by their affliction. There is currently one house in Northcliff, which provides care to children between the ages of four and fourteen from the various hospitals in the Johannesburg region. As a registered Section 21 (non-profit) organization, Marang House relies entirely upon external funding to supply these life-sustaining services.
