St Mary’s seesaw of seasons

In a month or so, the temperature here at St Mary’s Children's Home in Jo’burg is going to start dropping.

And dropping!

And when temperatures go down, our electricity bill goes up!

That’s the seesaw of seasons here at St Mary’s.

The higher electricity bill puts a huge strain on our budget, which is why I’m hoping I can count on you to send an urgent donation of winter comfort to our children.

Thanks to the kindness of sponsors, we’ve never had to choose between ‘heating or eating’ before. And your online gift, sent by clicking here, will ensure that we don’t have to make that choice this winter.

By keeping our home warm in the wintry nights and mornings – and ensuring the kids are dressed for winter – means fewer expensive visits to the doctor.

Your gift will also support children from the inside: by offering plenty of vitamin-packed fruit and vegetables, warm nutritious meals, hot drinks at night, and medicine.

So please click here right away to send your special gift to keep our children snug and healthy this winter. Thank you!
