Donations Urgently Required for Feeding Our Families Project
January is always a difficult month financially, and for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust it is no different because we basically deplete all our funds and stocks during the month of December for our Christmas Elf Project and our Festive Season Food Hampers that we provide for our Children with Cancer and their families.
In excess of 50% of the individual Childhood Cancer-affected families that are supported by the Little Fighters Cancer Trust have lost one income due to the child’s diagnosis. Children with Cancer have to follow a nutritionally specific diet, which is often impossible for families to follow due to lack of funds.
With one parent in the hospital for months, sometimes years on end, the sole breadwinner struggles to make ends meet at home. The Little Fighters Cancer Trust ensures that these families have food in the home while the Child with Cancer is in and out of hospital via our Feeding Our Families project.
We need YOUR help to put food on the table for many of our Little Fighters and their Families who are really struggling. Donations can be made in the form of product or financial help.
You can find a list of what we need on our WISHLIST under our Little Fighters Cancer Trust PANTRY Project.
Alternatively please contact:
for a list of non-perishables required. They will also be able to supply you with drop-off points in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth.
If you do not live in any of these areas, but would like to help, perhaps you could get your business, school, sports club or church to do a non-perishable food collection for our Little Fighters.
Should the volume collected warrant a special collection, please let us know via one of the above e-mail addresses and we will make arrangements to collect.
LFCT tops up all deliveries of non perishables with fresh products as often as we are able. Perishables can only be purchased on the day of the delivery, so we also need funds to make these purchases.

Any companies or businesses who would like to purchase non-perishable food in bulk as part of your CSI spending, please contact us for details on how to process your donations and a list of specific dietary needs for our Little Fighters.
Children with Cancer have impaired immune systems and very specific nutritional needs, so we ask that you please do not donate expired food or damaged containers of food, as we often receive these and we CANNOT send these to our Little Fighters and their Families.
