Donate your time

‘The soul is healed by being with children.’ – Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Visiting JJ Haven can feel overwhelming. The suffering that these children have endured in the past, the extent of their needs in the present and the bleak future that some of them face (because of physical, mental, psychological and educational obstacles) make it seem as though improving their lot is impossible.

No one person can provide everything that these children need. Your contribution may seem tiny. However, all the input and help that JJ Haven has received from volunteers in the past has made an enormous difference and continues to improve the lives of these children. You may not have money or goods to donate, but your skills and your presence are invaluable, if you are able to give of your time. No one is too old, too unfit or too unskilled to be able to contribute. 

What we would really appreciate from you is help with:

  • Cleaning
  • Gardening
  • Homework
  • Sport
  • Play 
  • Skills development
  • Maintenance
  • Fundraising
