Snug As A Bug

The LFCT Snug as a Bug Project was born early winter of 2013, due to the increasing requests to our organization to provide Children with Cancer with clothing. In short, two young boys we met at an oncology ward spurred this project in motion. One of these children had only one pair of long pants, far too small, for winter. The other boy had to wear girl’s clothing due to having nothing else to wear.

The original aim was to do the Snug as a Bug Project as a short-term project, but with enthusiasm of our Supporters and Partners, this project is now a fully fledged long-term project.

During 2013’s winter, Little Fighters Cancer Trust was able to provide close to 90 Children with Cancer with brand new clothing. Due to treatment diminishing a Child with Cancer’s immune system, and the Child being very susceptible to infections, we distribute only newly bought clothing with this project.

This project will culminate twice annually, just before winter, and again just before summer. However, donations received toward the Snug as a Bug Project during the rest of the year will not go to waste, but will be distributed as the need arises among individual Childhood Cancer Affected Families and new Families requesting assistance.

We encourage groups, whether religious, sport, cultural or corporate, to purchase new clothing according to the specifications above and to deliver to our office in Paarl for distribution.

Alternatively, as a registered NPO with PBO status, we are very successful in haggling with shops for better prices and discounts. Financial contributions can therefore also be made toward the Snug as a Bug Project, and we will do the shopping for you, stretching your donation to do its most!

Please contact LFCT’s Project Manager for more information and involvement.
