We're stretching Mandela Day into a week!

We already have all the volunteers we need on the day, but you can still honour Nelson Mandela's dream of bringing people together to help one another. Here's how ...

From Tuesday 18 until 1pm on Friday 21 July, visit the Johannesburg Children's Home to see our kids' Art exhibition. Colourful and unique artwork will be on sale - with proceeds going towards the cost of caring for our family of 64 boys and girls.

We also invite you to donate R1, R2 R5 or R10 for each of your 67 minutes of community service. Your donation will be a huge help in providing food and toiletries for the children and cleaning products for the cottages.

Any amount you can donate now online will be such a blessing. And keep alive Madiba's belief that, "there can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children. "

Our work at the Johannesburg Children's Home reminds us every day that reaching out to a child who's been hurt or neglected in the past ... and giving him or her the encouragement and opportunity to start anew and grow into a happy, successful youngster ... is one of the most important ways we can influence the future and build stronger communities.

So please will you make your Mandela Day contribution now? Thank you for caring.

How to help

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

Order delicious party platters at reasonable rates ... or make use of our laundry service.

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.

Make a birthday donation of R125, R1250 or R12500 in celebration of this milestone year for JCH

Run a marathon ... enter a cycle race ... or help our kids by asking friends to donate to JCH instead of buying you a birthday or anniversary gift.

Putting the pieces back together

The Johannesburg Children's Home provides
a safe refuge for 64 children of all races
who have been found in need of care by the Children's Court.
