If you can see Jesus Christ in the face of a suffering stranger, why not join us?

"We open our gifts, laugh together, sit down to eat.
But beyond the window, out there in the darkness, are those for whom Christmas brings no respite.

For them, it's another day of loneliness, hunger, impoverishment, fear, sickness, homelessness and weariness.

How I wish that we privileged few could hear the voices of those beyond our windows. If only now, at Chritmas, we could bring them in to share our privileges, and hear their individual stories."

– Pam Brown

Will you add a needy person to your Christmas list?

With just a few weeks to go before schools close and the festive holiday season begins, we are already planning festive meals and family get togethers, and writing out our Christmas gift lists.

It's the time of the year for giving and sharing ... and we're challenging you to place an extra name on your Christmas list this year ... the name of one of the needy people in our area.

For just R200 you can provide a food hamper of basic foodstuffs ... enough to feed a family of four for two to three weeks.

There's no turkey or ham or luxury biscuits in these hampers - just basic food items that many of us take for granted. And yet, it makes all the difference to your less privileged neighbours ... people who might otherwise go hungry over the holidays.

So please will you join the campaign and make your donation online now?

With your help, we hope to distribute 1000 hampers over the next few weeks. So if you can donate more than one, it would be wonderful. You can also help by sharing this page on social media and asking all your friends to support needy people over Christmas as you have done. Thank you.
