Join our shoebox Christmas gift campaign

Please help us collect enough Christmas gifts for 148 children with severe/profound intellectual and physical disabilities at our three Special Education and Care Centres in Heideveld, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha. The children are from poor communities and are unlikely to receive a gift on Christmas Day.


All you have to do is fill one or more shoeboxes with items such as soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a comb, facecloth, socks, raisins or fruit rolls, a small packet of chips, a box of juice and a sun hat. The contents of each box should be worth between R150 to R200.


Apart from being a wonderful surprise for them, your gift will also provide them with items that many of us take for granted but that are special treats for them.

Who: Would you, your family or your company be able to help?

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