Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have helped the Reach For A Dream Foundation realise the wishes of some terminally sick children, with midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala playing a role.

The non-profit organisation helps fulfil the dreams of children between the age of three and 18, who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

As a part of the ongoing partnership with Chiefs, Reach For A Dream organised for two young patients to visit Naturena to meet their hero, Tshabalala.

Omphemetse Maila and Sfiso Lubisi were the two youngsters who were able to meet Shabba and fulfil a goal they both had in life. Maila has a rare heart disease while Lubisi has end stage renal failure.

The pair both fell in love with the 32-year-old in 2010 as their families were Amakhosi fans. The 'dreamers' met the player and were then invited to watch the first team train.

The experienced campaigner then went a step further and signed a Chiefs jersey for the duo who were undoubtedly over the moon with the experience.

The Bafana Bafana international then wished both boys the strength to soldier on as they continued their battle against their respective ailments.
