EKUJABULENI – ‘THE PLACE WHERE YOU’LL FIND HAPPINESS’
A

t Christmas especially, spending time with our family means so much. And the children at Ekujabuleni Children’s Home feel the same. But these children have no family. They’re either orphans, or have been removed from harmful family circumstances by the court.

Margaret Quali, the ‘mother figure’ at the Home, is an 80 year old retired nursing sister with the biggest warm and loving heart. Each child at Ekujabuleni is treated as one of her own.

But, with only a small Government grant and limited public funding, Margaret struggles to provide the everyday needs of the children.

Let alone something special at Christmas time.

In the Zulu culture, children traditionally get a new set of clothing for Christmas. Poor parents will save up all year to afford these special clothes. But buying new outfits for 37 children is totally out of Margaret’s reach.

Unless you can find it in your heart to be ‘family’ for a child at Ekujabuleni.

Would you be willing to make a Christmas donation now to help keep this family tradition alive for the children?

Your kindness will enable Margaret to take the children shopping, so that each can choose a new dress, or shirt and pants. It would bring such joy!

These children are used to wearing hand-me-downs, which get older and more threadbare as time passes. New Christmas clothes will be dearly cherished. Worn to church, for birthdays and special occasions, as well as being a symbol of family love.

So please say ‘yes’ and make your gift online now.

In return, we’d like to offer you a humble printable Christmas decoration to display in your home – and draw the presence of the child you’ve gifted into your own family Christmas.

May you be blessed by the infant Child Jesus, who entered our world on Christmas Day, and may you be richly rewarded for caring for one of God’s children in Africa.
