Time’s running out . . .
your help’s needed now
more than ever!

If you’ve already made your gift towards Crisis Relief Basins to help poor families in and around Cape Town to get through winter, thank you so much! I can’t tell you how much your kindness ­and compassion means.

But if you’re yet to make your donation . . . please do so here today.

Poor families who’ve worked so hard to build their shacks – and buy books and school uniforms for their children – will lose everything when the floods come.

But your support here will help us stock up on Crisis Relief Basins . . . filled with essential basics like a blanket, towel, tinned food, toiletries and a few meters of black plastic to help seal off the leaks in a flimsy shack.

The truth is your gift will not just help rebuild lives – you’ll be showing families that you care enough to help them in their time of need.

But time’s running out – the rain’s already started. So please make your donation towards a crisis basin – or more than one – and make a difference in the lives of desperately poor communities in and around Cape Town?
