Physical comfort is a basic human need and yet something so many individuals are deprived of. We take the simple luxury of sleeping on a pillow at night for granted and yet so many children have never owned a pillow. It certainly doesn't directly address some of the overwhelming issues these individuals face, but a pillow represents an act of love and provides a form of comfort from the difficult lives imposed on these young souls.
Please join me in raising money to purchase pillows for vulnerable children and families living in the Ufafa Valley Community in Ixopo, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa by making a small donation. Woza Moya is a non-profit, community based organisation based in the region. They will distribute these pillows as part of their community-based outreach programme.
A simple act of giving a pillow is an act of love and generosity, which will be felt by these needy young children and can make a huge impact in their lives.
R100 will buy a good quality pillow and pillow slip. Our goal is to purchase at least 100 pillows for distribution in early January, so that 100 children can start the year enjoying a comfortable night's sleep for the first time in their lives.
If you'd prefer to donate a pillow and pillow slip, I'd be very happy to arrange for collection in the Durban area - simply email me on [email protected] to arrange.
(Note funding goal set in US dollars due to Paypal restriction, however you can make a donation in any currency and use your credit card. Click on Pay with Paypal and the option to use a credit card will come up. All funds raised will be drawn in South African Rands to purchase pillows and monitored by Woza Moya.)
