In light of the COVID-19 pandemic's rapid escalation, Christel House South Africa has identified 166 of the school's most at-risk families while they are braving the lockdown during the weeks to come. All of the students who attend Christel House come from severely impoverished homes, but these families are particularly destitute - many only receive a single social grant to meet all of their basic needs.
That's why, despite closing the school, Christel House has set up an e-wallet system for these families where they will receive a small stipend every week for the next 8 weeks to purchase basic food supplies for their families and to assist with academic support for students during this crisis. R250 can support one family for two weeks, R500 will help the family for one month and R1 000 will support the family for two months.

Please note that all South African donors will receive Section 18A tax certificates and businesses can also earn BEE points for their contributions.
