Wishlist Wednesday: Mandela Day Activities

Most of you who are on our Facebook Page will know that the Little Fighters Cancer Trust suffered the loss of around R50 000 worth of donations (including blankets for our Get Wrapped Project) due to leakages and flooding caused by the heavy rainstorm we had in the Western Cape last month.

While we are, together with our insurance company, busy resolving that problem, the various other problems at our headquarters, including a lack of sufficient space, means that we once again have to move….

We have fortunately found great new premises just up the road and are  moving on the 15th July – and here is where you come in….

While we usually do our bit for our Little Fighters and their Families on Mandela Day via our Mandela Day Project, this year it is US who need help.

If any of you in the Paarl area are still looking for something to do as your Mandela Day Activity (67 minutes for Mandela), we are in need of your help!


We need a LOT of hands-on help from 14-20 July

  • Help pack
  • Help move (only two buildings down the road!)
  • Put up shelving
  • Build desks and counters
  • Clean and prettify
  • Put up signage


Other Ways You Can Help

  • Do a second-hand drive among staff, friends and family and deliver your donation, price, record the stock and pack out on shelves
  • We are in urgent need of shelving and clothing rails, a front-of-shop counter, a couple of desks and tables.
  • If you perhaps have any of these items that you are willing to donate we will gladly take them off your hands.
  • Alternatively you could make a financial donation for us to buy what we need (please mark all financial donations “Fittings)


To ensure you partner with the Little Fighters Cancer Trust to make a difference, please contact us as soon as possible to confirm your involvement!

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
