Give Christmas joy to a disabled child

Please join our Christmas Shoebox Campaign – fill a shoebox with small treats for a child with severe intellectual and physical disabilities at one of our Special Education and Care Centres in Heideveld, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha. Wrap your gift up in bright paper and deliver it to our offices. We'll do the rest!

The children are from poor communities and are unlikely to receive a gift on Christmas Day. The shoebox gifts delight the children, and also provide them with everyday items that many of us take for granted.


Last year we collected 180 shoeboxes from caring people like you – this year we hope to match or even better this wonderful outreach.






You, your colleagues, your family or your friends

  What 180 shoeboxes filled with: soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a comb, a facecloth, socks, raisins or fruit rolls, a small packet of chips, a box of juice, a small chocolate and a plastic cup or mug

  Cost Each box should not cost more than R150 to R200

  How Please contact Hazel on 021 447 9040 or email hazel@cmh.org.za
