There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children
- Nelson Mandela


Sisanda FunDaytion is a non-profit organisation working with volunteers to influence the lives of disadvantaged children in South Africa through recreation, education and inspirational fun. 

Our vision is a world in which all children can experience the joy of being children and have the chance to laugh, run, jump and play. Through our programmes we harness the energy of volunteers to help our children learn about and enjoy the wonders of the world they live in.

Santa Shoeboxes - the spirit of giving

Tanja Lifka, a wonderful soul from Austria did a call out for Santa Shoeboxes. Her friends and family in Europe reacted whole heartedly. The result was awe-inspiring: 
100x Santa Shoeboxes were donated!!! Not only are the gifts beautiful and of good quality, but personalized cards with photos gave the gifts a special touch. Sanitary items, clothing and stationary items were amongst the gorgeous toys. We are humbled and touched by the immense generosity and Austrian love. It is a true portrayal of active citizenship.

Christmas arrived early at "St Joseph's Home" on Thursday. We have often collaborated with St Joseph's and being able to give back before Christmas means a lot to us. The loving care they give their chronically ill children is always visible on their little ones faces. There was a lot of excitement once the gifts were spotted. A lovely baby mobile was also donated which was kitted out with calming lullaby tunes. As soon as it found its place above a cot, Lala-land was soon entered peacefully.
After spending a memorable time at St Josephs, we left to visit The Carehaven for Abused Women and Children, Salvation Army.  The courageous women and their brave children were very welcoming and appreciative. The children opened their gifts with grace and contagious curiosity. It was intriguing to observe that something as simple as a toothbrush and tooth-paste could bring a kid so much joy. It reminds us that it's the little things in life that matter.

Share the gift of giving.
