COVID-19 Crisis: Food parcels for those in need

Our thoughts turn to those who are suffering and in greater need than ever during these anxious and uncertain times. Many were already living hand-to-mouth. Now, more than ever, they need our support.

But we rely on collections taken at Mass to fund our work. With no one being able to attend Church, these funds have dried up. If you are able to help someone who is hungry and desperate, please make a donation online now.

Donate now

Your gift of R90 for a small food parcel, R180 for a medium parcel or R270 for a larger parcel will make a difference. Apart from feeding our own communities at parish level, we need food for the Polokong Children’s Village, Frederic Place Old Age Home, Mercy House, Sisters of Charity, Nazareth House and refugees.

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.
