Winter warmth doesn't have to cost a fortune
For just R297, you can wrap one of our children in a cosy jersey, beanie and slippers. Plus a mask (because Covid-19 is still with us) and a hearty plate of hot, nutritious food.
Please will you provide this special winter warmth ‘pack’ – by donating R297 online now – and help keep a child warm and safe this winter?
When lockdown began, it was still summer. Then the days got shorter, and the temperature dropped. We’ve added blankets to the children’s beds and swopped caps for beanies.
But, if you have children of your own, you’ll also have noticed how they’ve shot up over these past few months. Our kids are the same. It’s like they’ve all grown 10cm during lockdown!
So, on top of the extra costs involved with keeping our Home Coronavirus free, the children now need new winter clothes to keep them warm through the chilly days and weeks ahead.
All children should be warm, well fed and protected against Covid-19. Please will you play your part by donating towards these basic needs today?
Every child needs food, clothing, education, shelter, medical care and love.
We give the love, but we need your help to pay for everything else.
Please help us raise these kids the way they deserve. Thank you!
children deserve to be safe & happy
In a perfect world, every child would grow up in a loving home – with enough food, clothing and opportunities to play and learn.
But it’s not a perfect world.
The Durban Child & Youth Care Centre strives to give children who’ve been orphaned, abandoned, neglected or abused, another chance of a happy childhood. We provide a safe home, all the daily necessities, education and encouragement to help them develop into healthy, well-adjusted kids.
Wherever possible, we work with the family to enable children to return home. Because every child needs a place to belong.
