COVID 19 Christmas Food Box
In a bid to bring joy to children’s heart this Christmas, Wisekids Trust will be donating the COVID 19 Christmas Food Boxes on 19 December 2020 to 40 vulnerable and gifted kids. There’s nothing more heartfelt than a smile that creeps across a child’s face. A total of ZAR435.14 helps us to buy one food box/per kid.
Wisekids Trust has assisted up to 33 vulnerable and gifted kids since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Trust will continue to be active in this space and help kids whose families were negatively affected by the pandemic.
Wisekids Trust is grateful for the generosity and help of our partners and friends who made our recent donation day, 17 October 2020 a huge success.
