Hundreds of patients arrive daily at trauma facilities in Johannesburg hospitals. Thousands more are admitted for medical conditions and procedures. The State provides very cheap, or free, medical care. What it can't provide is more than the basic bed and treatment.

Victims of abuse, assault and accidents typically have their clothes cut from them during treatment, and these are often damaged and bloodied anyway. When it comes time to discharge those patients, the hospital cannot provide replacement clothing and shoes. This is where we come in. Most of our supplies of clothing and shoes to patients originate from donations of second-hand goods, some are hand-made.

Toiletries, such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, wash cloths and deodorants, are basic needs for anyone staying more than a day in hospital and we deliver these regularly.
Well over 100 babies are delivered daily at our local hospitals in Johannesburg, and many of these arrive without warning. Mothers are given between 4 and 12 hours to leave the hospital after a normal delivery, so they often need baby goods.

Other needs, such as Occupational Therapy Aids, recovery aids, educational games and activities are also requested routinely.
