Tis the season for snuggles

Winter in Jo’burg can be a dark and lonely time, especially for children who’ve endured hardship and neglect. But with your help we’ll keep children at St Mary’s Children’s Home happy all the way through the season of sniffles!

It doesn’t cost a cent to make sure our children feel loved and cherished each day. But our other winter care needs aren’t free.

That’s why we’d love it if you could help by clicking here now to send your gift of winter warmth.

We’ll use your gift to keep our children snugly dressed in winter woollies; and provide them with all the flu remedies and fresh, vitamin-enriched fruit and vegetables they need.

Growing children tend to get extra hungry when it’s cold, so we like to welcome them home from school with the delicious aroma of a hearty stew or soup; or the sweet smell of hot chocolate.

Your gift – made online here – will help to take care of the winter needs of all 60 children at St Mary’s Children’s Home.

Life has been hard for them – but winter doesn’t have to be another hardship!

So please click here now and send your gift to help our children enjoy the season of snuggles.
