Help us deal with those little bumps and scrapes

It's been a long, cold winter and the kids can't wait to get back out into the sunshine now that spring is finally here! Climbing on the jungle gym, skipping rope, riding bikes, kicking a football around – it's all great fun and really important for building strong, healthy little bodies. But inevitably, there will be scraped knees, cuts, insect bites and other little accidents.

Our medicine chest is sadly depleted after the coughs and colds of winter. Please help us stock up now on plasters, cotton wool, antiseptic, anti-histamine cream, sunblock and other essentials, ready for the long, active summer days.

Hugs and 'kisses better' don't cost anything. But everything else does! Please help us keep our kids safe and happy all through summer. Thank you!

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

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.
