Ramona Reimer was a passionate woman who died of cancer at the age of 26. During her life she felt a special call to go to Africa and help the less fortunate, especially orphans. As she was fighting her battle with cancer, she still believed she would go there one day. Her faith, love and her vision for Africa became stronger and stronger as her battle continued.
After a 3 year courageous battle with cancer she passed away on Nov.27/09.
After Ramona passed away her family as well as close friends decided to accept her dream for the less fortunate of Africa and continue to pursue it in her memory. She has passed the baton on to us, and amazingly doors have opened for us and people have felt called to help with the vision for Africa. Now her dream has become our dream, the dream to help the disadvantaged of Africa.
Ramona was a niece of Alpha Hockey Inc founder and CEO, Ray Petkau. We are proud to have had a part in building the Ramona’s Reach Children’s Home, School, Health center and Guesthouse in Pamora, Africa. Ramona was also married to a cousin of James Reimer, and James has been instrumental in helping raise funds for this charity.
