Clean Team needs your help

In an effort to keep Covid-19 out of our children's home, we've stepped up cleaning schedule.

No longer will a quick daily dust and sweep do! Every day, we are 'deep cleaning' the children's cottages. And that means lots of extra Domestos, Handy Andy, tile cleaner and bleach. Plus a never ending supply of hand sanitizer and soap.

Now that winter's on the way, all this extra hand washing is leading to dry skin and chapped hands. The girls, especially, would love a little handcream to keep their skin soft and moisturised. It may seem like a luxury, but this small bit of comfort goes a long way during these anxious and frustrating times.

But it all adds up to a big increase in our shopping bill. At a time when we can least afford it, as most fundraising activities have been put on hold during lockdown.

Please consider making a donation online now towards extra hygiene and cleaning products.

Any amount you can spare will be gratefully accepted and will make all the difference as we strive to keep the children safe.

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.
