Donate Buckets of Hope for Christel House SA students

Christel House South Africa is appealing to the public to donate ‘Buckets of Hope’ this festive season for needy Christel House SA students and their families. Our school serves 1000+ students from severely disadvantaged communities on the Cape Flats and our mission is to break the cycle of poverty. As part of our holistic education model, students receive nutritious meals when they attend school. During the December holidays, however, our families need help to put food on the table. Christel House SA is calling on donors to donate Buckets of Hope, filled with non-perishable food items and a few extra treats, to help bring relief to these families this festive season.

In a survey done by our school, almost half (44%) of their families reported that someone in their household lost their income due to the pandemic. We have identified families who are experiencing particularly difficult circumstances, with Covid-19 putting additional strain on their finances this year.

Each bucket costs R200 and our aim is to distribute 450 buckets to 450 families before the holiday break of 10 December.

1 Bucket of Hope = R200
2 Buckets of Hope = R400
3 Buckets of Hope = R600
5 Buckets of Hope = R1000

Every donation counts and all South African donors will receive a Section 18A tax-deductible certificate and businesses can also earn BEE points for their contributions.
