HELP PROVIDE THE MOST BASIC OF NECESSITIES … FOOD

T

he tragic legacy of the HIV/Aids pandemic in our country is the number of orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children left to fend for themselves in child only households.

Their plight sparked the establishment of Siyathandwa (“we are loved”) Drop-in Centres at some of our Missions. At these centres (supported by Missions friends who, like you, care deeply about children), children with no adult carers receive a nourishing breakfast and lunch each day.

Older children (who are often the head of the household) can safely leave younger siblings here while they attend school, knowing that they will enjoy a morning of fun activities like singing, story-telling, drawing and puzzle building. And when the older brothers and sisters return in the afternoons, they receive help with homework and other forms of guidance and practical assistance.

Heartbreakingly, during the Covid-19 lockdown, the centres have been forced to close. But life-giving food parcels are still being delivered to their homes. And this is where your generous support would make all the difference.

Your donation of any amount towards food parcels will help these children survive until the Drop-in Centres can open again.

More than that, it tells the children who depend on our centres that they truly are loved. As important as food, education, guidance and problem solving are – love is even more important. Please will you show your love to our Mission children by making your contribution now?
