Items we Need

The Mission

Our mission is to assist the needy our community with food, clothing, blankets and any other items that are donated to us from the community and surrounding businesses.

St Patrick’s Mother Teresa Charity Group

This group  was initiated in 1989. Parishioners of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church run the group on a voluntary basis, with no salaries being paid to anyone. We are associated with other charitable organizations such as ALPHA, the AIDS BABIES and TLC charity group. We operate from St. Patrick’s Church and report to the Bishop’s conference of  Southern Africa.

We sometimes share blankets and clothing with other Charitable Organizations for their distribution. Our success is thanks to organisations who donate to us and to kindhearted people, such as you.

Every Tuesday starting at about 17h15 

Along with a small but enthusiastic group of voluntary parishioners, and the goodwill of some small businesses of the area and other organizations


We assist between 600 to 700 people

This includes a home for disabled children. We are also giving out 50 food parcels every week to poor families at their homes.

It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.Mother Teresa
