Imagine going home for the school holidays and not having food to eat!
Many of our children are from underprivileged homes, where good, nourishing food is in short supply. Some of the children are on Antiretroviral treatment and cannot risk missing a meal as medication can’t be taken on an empty stomach.
But being allowed to go home for the holidays is an important part of our family reunification programme – and eagerly anticipated by the kids. Cases are reviewed regularly and we partner with the children’s extended family to ensure the children’s welfare while they are away.
Part of that is arranging food parcels for the children to take home with them. Over the years, our “Buckets of Love Campaign” has been generously supported by schools, religious groups, corporates and individuals. And now we need your help again.
Please become our partners in caring; help fill a bucket by donating non perishable food items such as:
- Baked beans
- Tinned fish & vegetable curry
- 5kg rice
- 2kg maize meal
- 2kg sugar
- 2kg samp
- Morvite instant porridge /Jungle oats
- Tea, coffee and powdered milk
- Onion soup
- 2 litre cooking oil
- Peanut butter and jam
In most cases the bucket of love we send them home with, becomes their only source of nutrition over the holidays! And we need 40 buckets for the December school holidays.
Items may be dropped off at the Durban Child & Youth Care Centre in Glenwood. Thank you for your ongoing support and care for our precious little ones.
