The Sunflower House needs our communities help right now

Sunflower Children’s Hospice was started 22 years ago on the 9th June this year. It is a charity that strives to bring happiness and colour to each child’s life.

It was originally started because of the need to care for so many children dying from AIDS. The hospice now provides care for children with life-limiting illnesses and severe disabilities.

Sunflower House has a unit for children who can’t be cared for in the community and who need urgent care. This unit is open 24 hours a day and has never closed in almost 22 years. The Community Care Team cares for around 350 children in the Bloemfontein and Botshabelo areas.

Get It Bloemfontein would like to appeal to you to support this worthy cause as the hospice is in much need of donations during this time of crisis.

With the Covid-19 situation their donations and fundraising opportunities have been affected while they need to continue to provide care for these very vulnerable children. The running costs have increased as they have had to buy protective equipment and transport their staff to and from work twice a day and make sure the community children have sufficient food, medicines and that they are safe.

The Sunflower Children’s Donations will be used for:

Disposable nappies, Personal protective equipment – visors, gowns, aprons and masks. Cleaning materials for Sunflower House and diesel for the hospice’s vehicle.

 

Contact details are:

Sr Joan Marston: 082 296 4367 or Sr Melinda Muller 082 541 6017
