For those who are victims of domestic violence and have fled their homes without any possessions at all, we recommend donations such as a cricket set, games, a ball, hats, sunscreen and swimmers etc.
For a mother or child without shelter, proper food, care or support a small gift can mean the world to them during this time; be it pampering treats like makeup, perfume, toys or necessities like food, toiletries and household items.
Children tend to like and need the same things as any children their age. Children being supported vary from girls under the age of 1 - 16 years old, and boys under the age of 1 - 18 with also 1 x newborn...
