The role of the SVP is to assist the needy and help the poor.
Each Conference first needs to assist the parishioners in the parish if there is a need otherwise they assist outside their parish.
Our Conference currently provides sandwiches on a weekly basis the underprivileged children at Maitland Garden Village Primary school during the school terms.
We collect clothing for “Help a Rural Child” that goes to the people on the farm at Goedgedacht. We also take the clothes to Blikkiesdorp and the Sisters of Charity in Khayelitsha.
We assist with Buckets of Love (the bucket consists of non-perishable groceries and luxuries) that is distributed to the needy throughout Cape Town.
The Conference donates cash to the Sisters of Charity to support them in their ministry and we host Christmas party for the children of Maitland Garden Village and provide them with toys received from the annual “Toy Run”.
Apart from these we also distribute toys to Eros School, St Joseph’s School in Montana and St Joseph’s pre-school in Langa.
Should you need assistance or wish to join SVP please contact Klaus on 071 877 1962 or Loreene 082 258 0289.
