Winter is coming

Have you noticed the mornings are darker, nights are colder and there's a distinct nip in the air? That means it's time to stock up with extra nourishing food and meds for the children.

During the colder weather, appetites increase and the boys, especially, get very hungry. We like to give them a bigger helping of porridge for breakfast and a warming cup of soup and a sandwich when they come home from school.

But it all costs money – and that's why we must ask for your help now.

Despite years of unbelievable hardship and neglect in the past, our boys and girls have learnt to trust that here in our Home, there'll always be something to eat, a warm bed to sleep in, and clothes to wear. We can't let them down now!


Please will you make your contribution now towards extra food, flu remedies and warm clothing? Your caring means these youngsters will grow into strong, healthy, happy boys and girls. Thank you!

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.

Make a birthday donation of R125, R1250 or R12500 in celebration of this milestone year for JCH

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.
