Bless the elderly this Christmas


The Issy Geshen Home appeals to the community to support their 2023 Christmas campaign for the elderly.

Christmas is a time to celebrate the joy of giving. However, the really valuable gifts are not tangible ones. The Christmas spirit is more about spending quality time with family and loved ones, celebrating, feasting and creating memories to cherish forever.

For our elders, Christmas is a special time of year. We invite the community to join our efforts by bringing excitement and cheer to the elders through delicious treats, a traditional 3-course lunch, entertaining music, cheerful volunteers and much-awaited gifts.

For over 60 years, Issy Geshen has been a beacon of hope for frail and vulnerable elders, caring for their essential needs, including safe accommodation, 24-hour medical and health care, services and meals. The Home focuses on ensuring their residents' safety and physical, emotional and psychological well-being. 

We want every elder to experience the magic of Christmas and enjoy precious time together. However, we recognise that this year will be tough with the cost-of-living crisis hitting us so hard. As a non-profit, we rely entirely on community support. None of our efforts would be possible without the help of donors, volunteers, and supportive community members.

We invite donors, supporters, local businesses and individuals to support our Christmas Appeal:

•           Sponsor a meal and gift for one elder at R250 pp

•           A table of 6 elders at R1500

This Christmas, help us to create special memories for our family of elders!
