Give the gift of light

“The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each other’s burdens, easing other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.”
– William Carey Jones

Thanda Foundation Trust has joined forces with the Velux Group to provide an award-winning Natural Light Solar Light to our surrounding communities. It’s been a difficult year for our neighbours, due to the severe drought and increased food costs.

Most of the families in the area do not have reliable access to electricity and therefore use expensive kerosene burners to light their homes, creating noxious indoor air pollution and often causing fires. The solar lights are highly durable and 5 hours of charging in the sun allows these lamps to produce up to 50 hours of light. The lights are manufactured in recyclable ABS and are weather and UV resistant. Give the gift of light with a R300 donation. Your donation will allow a Natural Light Solar Light to be gifted to a child in one of our three surrounding communities.
