"SAVE A LIFE,

IT'S IN YOUR BLOOD"
The journey of having a sick baby is not one that anyone would wish for, but it does bring an overwhelming amount of love and support. Every day, the families of children with rare diseases are reminded of how much they rely on families, friends and total strangers in their community to lighten the load that they bear. Recognising the importance and lack of support available, the Olive Children’s Foundation has a mission to help families and these children live their best lives possible.
OUR MISSIONMAKE A DONATION

OUR MOTIVATION

Baby Olive was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder which results in bone marrow failure, early onset cancers and congenital abnormalities called Diamond-Blackfan Anaemia (DBA). Her parents have identified the lack of support and expertise available in South Africa (and the rest of Africa) for this specific disorder and others like it.

WE'RE RAISING FUNDS FOR:

Infusion Clinic

Cover costs associated with the start-up of a paediatric day infusion centre, where children who require chronic intravenous therapies and blood transfusions can be attended to.

Helping Families

Aid other families of children with Diamond-Blackfan Anaemia (DBA) and other rare conditions, with financial shortfalls related to investigations and treatment.

Research

Aid the DBA Africa Registry and other rare conditions, in contributing to research in these field and keeping health care providers up to date about current breakthroughs and principles of management.
