On August 13th, 2016, Nahjae Haynes, accompanied by his parents Anthony and Natasha, as well as Precious Touch Foundation Inc. Vice President St Auban Callender, lifted off from Grantley Adams International Airport bound for Vancouver, Canada to meet his family members, some of whom he had never met. Nahjae and family were the guests of his cousin Nathaniel Brewster in West Vancouver.

During his stay, Nahjae enjoyed the company of a number of extended family members who visited from locally and overseas specially to spend time with him.

Some of the activities enjoyed during his stay included;

  • Biking in Stanley park – this is a coastal park specially geared to bikers, and allows for bikers to stop at various areas to enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding areas.
  • A day at the beach – an active time at Kits Beach.
  • A visit to Play Land with all the exciting rides, games etc.

 

Nahjae was having so much fun that his stay was extended by 6 days at the request of his parents, and he reluctantly departed Vancouver on August 26th, to arrive back home in Barbados on August 27th.

On arrival at the Airport, Nahjae and his mum were met by members of the Foundation who welcomed them back home in fine style. When Nahjae was asked about his wish experience in Canada, he was reluctant to speak at first but then with a shy-looking smile remarked that he wanted to stay a bit longer as he was having so much fun with his family. Natasha thanked the Foundation for granting Nahjae's wish and said that she also had a great time. Another precious wish granted, thanks to our very kind sponsors - Manulife Re.
