✨Wishlist Wednesday✨ Food & Pre-Loved Goods


The one thing that we never have enough of at the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is FOOD.

More than 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.

This makes it very difficult for these families to ensure that their Child with Cancer has the nutritional food he or she needs in order to build up their immune system so that they can fight off the cancer.

LFCT helps out in excess of 100 families with food and other basic needs every month 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.

Feeding Our Families Project

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust delivers Family Support boxes of food and other goodies to our Little Fighter Families in need every month. Deliveries are done via our fantastic transport supporters, Kargo National (Pty) Ltd, to whom we are eternally grateful as we could not possibly do this without them.

All our Family Support boxes include non-perishable foods, nutritional supplements, blankets, clothing, toys, toiletries, cleaning materials, and treats. They will also include specific items that a particular Little Fighter needs such as diapers/adult nappies.

Deliveries to local families (within a 100 km radius) will also include frozen goods (unfortunately long-distance travel precludes us from sending frozen goods to families further away).

You can find a list of the very specific items that we require on our Feeding Our Families Project page.

Financial Contributions toward this project are highly appreciated to enable us to purchase perishable items such as meat, dairy products and veggies to add to the boxes.

 

 

Pre-Loved Charity Shoppe

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust employs various methods of fundraising including selling gently pre-loved goodies at our Charity Shop, based at our HQ in Paarl.

While we cannot give our Little Fighters second-hand clothes or goods, we welcome your donations of gently-loved clothing, shoes, handbags, curtains, linen, furniture, appliances, bric-a-brac, toys, books, stationery, pots ‘n pans, crockery & cutlery, old cellphones, old computers, and anything else you may have lying around for which you no longer have a use but which is still in good condition.

By donating these goods to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust Pre-Loved Charity Shoppe, you will be enabling LFCT to raise much-needed funds by selling these goods to those who would be happy to have them.

WE GUARANTEE – 100% of the proceeds of these sales will go towards helping our Little Fighters and their Families cope just a little bit better with the scourge of cancer.

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
