TIMELINE: CONTINUOUS

We are in CONSTANT need for products to provide Childhood Cancer affected Families with monthly groceries, so we ask individuals and companies to do non-perishable food, toiletries and cleaning materials drives, so that we can continue providing groceries and toiletries to the families who depend on us for regular assistance.

We are actively involved with around 100 Childhood Cancer affected Families at any given time. The majority of the Families to whom we offer Support require help due to one of the following circumstances:

  • One parent had to quit their employment as their child with cancer needs permanent care/cannot go to school, or is on active treatment, which means, hospitalised for weeks, sometimes months, on end;
  • One or both parents are unemployed;
  • Single Parent Families, with little or no income;
  • Grandparent-run Families, with no income, except Government Grants.

Here is a basic list of non-perishable food, toiletries and household cleaning materials contained in the Family Care Package which we send to the Families where possible on a monthly basis. Donations of any of these products would be highly appreciated:
