food items
Please donate towards food parcels for those who are hungry and in desperate need right now. May God bless you.

People need food

Members of the Society of St Vincent de Paul continue to respond to cases of urgent need, where people in unrest areas, especially, have nothing to eat.


Others have lost their jobs … or were barely getting by before Lockdowns and unrest made it impossible to work. Please help us to help them … by providing some essential foodstuffs.


SSVP food parcels range from R90 for a single person to R180, R270 and R500 to provide enough food to last a family of four a whole week.


They’re filled with maize, rice, pasta, soy, breakfast cereal, tinned food, jam, tea, milk, and other similar items. No luxuries – but it’s the answer to a prayer for a desperate family.

Donate now

Your donation of R250, R500 or any amount you can spare will be put to immediate use to buy essential items to fill these parcels.

Any amount – donated online now – will be deeply appreciated and will make a difference. Thank you for caring about so many South Africans who are facing an uncertain future right now.

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.
