Please help me support the wonderful HEART NPO, a small non-profit organization that operates in an underprivileged part of Paarl, in the Cape, South Africa.
HEART is doing an amazing job providing food and essentials to Children, Elderly, Sick, Frail and Disabled Persons, but they are severely short for their Christmas Appeal, through which they hope to give the 140 Children they look after a lovely Christmas. So far just 4 of these children have been sponsored.
The cost is R500.00 per Child, which, including the applicable fees, amounts to only about £30.
For this amount, each Child will receive:
* A Christmas Gift
* A set of new clothes
* Attend a Christmas Party and Meal and experience Santa calling their names from under a Christmas tree - a first for most of these Children
* A school bag and set of school stationary, so they have the basics to start the new school year on 9 January 2019, with some Dignity
I would love to get as many of these children sponsored as possible, and wondered if we can rally together and make this happen. The children come from low- or no-income homes, where resources are scarce. Many are raised by Grandparents, as Parents have fallen into drug and alcohol addiction, and those Grandparents struggle to survive on small South African State Pensions (which amount to ZAR1600.00 / GBP90 per month) Many of these Children are also being raised by Widows and Single Mothers, with no financial Support.
Please help me make their Christmas one to remember.
