Helping You to Support Children and Families affected by AIDS

How To Help

Donate food and clothing

Food and clothing donations

Make a positive difference in the lives of a family affected by HIV – sponsor a Food Pack for R200, and help feed a family for a month, not bad considering it’s only the price of 2 movie tickets and a small popcorn. Sponsor a Food Pack for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months and make a positive difference!

Become an “activist” at your work, sports club, church or school in collecting the right kind of food and clothing. The food stuff should be non-perishables, like the items in our Food Pack: 500g Dried beans, 425g Pilchards , 2kg Rice, Peanut butter, 750ml Cooking oil, 2.5kg Sugar, Mielie Meal, 500g Samp and beans, Pasta, Jam, 1 Soup Packet, Oats

  • While we are grateful for clothing, we would appreciate if it is clean, folded and repaired.
  • Please drop off all donations at the church office of Pinelands Baptist Church, La Gratitude, Pinelands.
