• Our 'Easter' egg drive may
    be a little untradtional

    Chocolate eggs taste nice. But they are high in sugar, with nothing much in the way of nutritional value!

Please support our 'Easter' egg drive

Right now the shops are full of enticing chocolate eggs, bunnies and other Easter goodies. All children love them, of course! But what our kids really need are real fresh eggs. Along with fresh fruit, milk, meat and vegetables.

This Easter, please will you donate a shopping basket (or trolley!) full of fresh, healthy food for our family of boys and girls?

Because these foods need to be bought fresh every week, we respectfully ask that you click here to make a cash donation, rather than dropping off items at the Home. That way we can avoid any wastage when food spoils.

Your gift of R257 will fill a shopping basket with a weeks' worth of eggs, cheese, bananas, apples and grapes for the children in one cottage.

R324 will buy potatoes, carrots, cabbage, butternut, onions, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli and sweetcorn for one cottage. R412 will add, yoghurt, bread, margarine, chicken polony and milk. And R993 will buy all the fresh food needed for one cottage for one week!

But we have eight cottages. And 52 weeks to budget for every year! So any amount you can manage, made online right now, will help fill the children's tummies with good healthy food.

Don't think of it as just a contribution towards food. What you're really giving is the chance for kids to build strong, healthy bodies for life. And helping young brains develop properly, so that they can absorb lessons in class and do well at school.

For children who've had a rough start in life - and perhaps even gone without food from time to time - it's also a powerful reminder that here they are loved. Not only by the staff. But by a warm circle of kindly 'aunties' and 'uncles' ... all ready to go the extra mile to ensure they have everything they need to enjoy the happy childhood they deserve.

How to help

Bringing up a child is expensive! And when you have a 'family' of 64, every extra bit of cash helps.

Order delicious party platters at reasonable rates ... or make use of our laundry service.

If you can spare an hour or two a week, please consider volunteering at our Home?

Check out our 'wish list' for items needed right now. Or contact us for more information.

Download the free app (Android, iPhone or Blackberry) and scan our code to donate safely and easily.

Run a marathon ... enter a cycle race ... or help our kids by asking friends to donate to JCH instead of buying you a birthday or anniversary gift.

Putting the pieces back together

The Johannesburg Children's Home provides
a safe refuge for 64 children of all races
who have been found in need of care by the Children's Court.
