Food for aged

Thanks for bringing Christmas joy to the very old … and the very young!

Happiness is

Christmas really was a time of ‘goodwill towards all men’ – thanks to you!


Grateful thanks to all supporters and parishioners who shared their blessings with those less fortunate over the festive season. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to serve meals to the hungry … distribute food parcels to elderly folk at an old age home in Keinvlei … treat over 600 kids to a Christmas lunch in Bellville South … and distribute 124 x 10kg sacks of maize meal donated by the Rotary Club of George.


We are grateful for the dedication of Vincentians at parishes around the country, who gave up their own time to make sure the poor and hungry were not forgotten at this special time of year.


Thank you! As you gathered with your own family and friends to enjoy a Christmas meal, we hope your heart was filled with gladness, knowing  others were able to enjoy the day as well, because you care.


But the plight of the poor and hungry and homeless doesn’t end with one unselfish act over Christmas. Which is why we hope you’ll make SSVP your favourite charity, and continue to support our efforts throughout the year ahead.

If possible, please consider making a regular monthly contribution. If you feed just one family a month, your kindness creates an ever widening ripple of hope for the future.


Thank you and may God bless you.

Heart of our work

Our core work involves alleviating the worst human suffering in areas of abject poverty – where families live in homes made of cardboard or thin plastic … where unemployment and malnutrition is rife … and where parents are dying and leaving children to care for one another.

We help the hungry, the homeless, the sick, vulnerable children and destitute aged.

And because most of the work is done by volunteers, almost every cent you donate goes directly to helping those in need.
