React is a small charity, whose mission is to improve the lives of terminally ill children from low-income families. The charity works to give children comfort, dignity and where possible, greater independence.
React provides vital equipment which helps children’s development, yet is unavailable from other sources. They supply a wide range of equipment from specialist wheelchairs, beds, baths and mobility aids, to essential everyday homecare items like pushchairs and domestic appliances.
Working with a variety of medical professionals, React ensures that no child goes without items which are essential to their daily care routines. Because the children they support have life-limiting conditions, it is vital that they are able they respond with practical and sensitive support within days, if not hours
In 2016, React received a grant of £5,000 which will provide five children with equipment which will radically improve their quality of life.
We are absolutely delighted the Masonic Charitable Foundation is supporting React’s work with life-limited children. The £5,000 award will be instrumental in providing financially disadvantaged families with basic, essential equipment which is paramount to their child’s care.
