What will 2020 hold in store?

One thing is certain – poor and unemployed South Africans will continue to struggle to clothe themselves and put food on the table for their families.

And that means that Vincentians must continue to be the hands of Jesus – reaching out to help those who are suffering and in need.

But we can’t do it alone. We depend on other caring people …. people like you … to help provide the funds we need to fill food parcels with basics like rice, sugar, maize meal and tinned fish.

Jesus told his disciples: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40) His message of compassion and caring continues to inspire Christians around the world to help those who are less fortunate. If you are inspired to do good in His name, please consider  making a donation online now.

Donate now

R250 buys 20kg of rice … R200 buys 20kg of maize meal … R130 buys 6 cans of corned meat and R240 buys a case of tinned pilchards. Any amount you can give online now makes a difference to someone in true and desperate need.

So please make your New Year resolution now to give a little of what you have to help your less fortunate neighbours. Thank you!

Heart of our work

Our core work involves alleviating the worst human suffering in areas of abject poverty – where families live in homes made of cardboard or thin plastic … where unemployment and malnutrition is rife … and where parents are dying and leaving children to care for one another.

We help the hungry, the homeless, the sick, vulnerable children and destitute aged.

And because most of the work is done by volunteers, almost every cent you donate goes directly to helping those in need.
