Make a difference this Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela had a special place in his heart for children. So what better way could there be of continuing his legacy than by reaching out to a child in need this July?

At the Johannesburg Children's Home, we care for 64 children of all races – ranging in age from 7 to 18 years old. Each one of them needs school uniforms and supplies like pens & colouring pencils, files, glue, sellotape and calculators to encourage them to shine at school.

Then there's food, toiletries, cleaning materials for the cottages, bus fares, money for school outings and therapy sessions to help them overcome past hurts and trauma.

Please download our Wish List and see if there's something that you could provide for a child in need. And if you can't give any of these items, please consider making a cash donation towards them.

Better still, why not make every day a Mandela Day, by giving R67 every month by debit order?

Because every child deserves to grow up knowing he or she is loved and special. And that's what your gift says. Together we can build happy, successful young members of our Rainbow Nation.

How to help

Bringing up a child is expensive! And when you have a 'family' of 64, every extra bit of cash helps.

If you can spare an hour or two a week, please consider volunteering at our Home?

Check out our 'wish list' for items needed right now. Or contact us for more information.

Visit our virtual store to choose items for our kids – and make today extra special!

Run a marathon ... enter a cycle race ... or create your own event to help our kids.

Putting the pieces back together

a safe refuge for 64 children of all races
