Last year, in 2020, we packed 3000 Immanuel Shoe Boxes for all our children in the care of SA Cares for Life.  For many of these children this will be the only Christmas Gift they will receive this year.


If you have ever had the desire to make a difference, but always felt you do not have enough to give, the Immanuel Box is for you!  And there are many ways in which you can be involved.


1.  For only R500.00 you can make a difference in the life of a child, and pack a box.  You can also consider to use a back pack instead of a box.  The children love using the back packs as school bags!

2.  Support us financially to pack at box @ R500.00 on your behalf.

3.  Pack a family box with food items, for a family over the Christmas season.

4.  Donate specific items, stationary, clothing, tooth paste, soap, food, sweets.  These items will then be used to pack boxes for children who does not get sponsored by a packer.
