Heartbeat aims to bring a bit of Christmas Joy to all the children in our programmes every year, as we host Children’s Christmas Parties in all the communities where we work. Corporations, churches, volunteers, and friends come together in the true spirit of Christmas, in donating toys, gifts, food, drink, entertainment and other treats for these parties. Our aim is to bring the message of Christmas to the children, but also to have lots of fun. The children themselves are also involved in the organisation of their own parties – they assist with decorating the venue, maybe putting meat on the “braai” and often perform songs, dances and poetry readings – as part of the entertainment.
The parties usually take place during the last week of November / first week of December each year. We need your support and assistance to make this a reality.
