Okgabane (8) from Aliwal North, adores butterflies and everything pink. Her dream was to have a beautiful room but due to her treatment, there has never been time to redo it.
The foundation arranged to makeover her bedroom and give her a big surprise. The look on her face when she opened her newly painted door was priceless and really warms the heart.
“Thanks to Sandvik who made this dream possible & the awesome BFN volunteers who transformed her bedroom into a pink oasis.”
