Give help

Anyone can make a difference – Individuals, Businesses, other SSvP Conferences


Donate cash

Gifts of money – made online by credit/debit card or Instant EFT – can immediately be channelled to where the need is greatest.


Donate time

Your time is the most precious gift you can give. Please consider joining your nearest SSvP Conference.


Donate food, clothing, building materials

Collections of food and good second hand clothing, shoes and blankets are always needed. Most unwanted items can be put to good use.


Donate expertise

If you have skills such a bricklaying, plumbing, welding, motor mechanics, market gardening, etc., please consider mentoring someone who's unemployed.


Leave a legacy

One sentence in your Will can keep your vision of a more compassionate and just society alive for generations to come – without affecting your life today.


Keep our work in your prayers

We appreciate prayers for God to bless our work and watch over those we strive to help.

Leave a legacy

Leaving money to charity in your Will is a time-honoured tradition of ‘giving something back’ in celebration of your own life, your faith, and the privileges you have enjoyed. After you’ve made provision for your family and friends in your Will, you have the opportunity to help the larger family of which we are all part – the whole of mankind.

By including a bequest to the St Vincent de Paul Society, you have the satisfaction of knowing that your compassion and concern for those less fortunate will live on beyond your own lifetime. And you could save money. Because gifts to our Society are tax deductible, and may reduce the tax payable on your death.

    Pray with us

    Prayer Intention: Lord, please strengthen all members of the Society to better fulfill their mission of bringing consolation and help to the poor of South Africa.

    Dear Lord
    Make me a channel of your peace:
    Where there is hatred, let me bring your love;
    Where there is injury, your healing power,
    And where there is doubt, true faith in you.

    Make me a channel of your peace:
    Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope;
    Where there is darkness, only light,
    And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

    O Spirit,
    Grant that I may never seek,
    So much to be consoled as to console,
    To be understood as to understand,
    To be loved as to love with all my soul.

    Make me a channel of your peace.
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    In giving to all, that we receive,
    And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.
