Goodluck Hope House Christmas Gift

Hope House works in poverty-stricken areas. This year children will get Christmas gifts, something that rarely occurs in the households within these areas.


Hope House works to combat child abuse and addiction in parts of the Western Cape, they work in areas rife with poverty. This year children will get Christmas gifts, something that rarely occurs in the households within these areas.

The organisation offers counselling to children affected by child abuse. They also work to educate and combat community members about addiction.

There are many families in Atlantis and Kalkfontein that cannot afford to wake up to gifts on Christmas morning. Many children miss out on the joy of receiving something special of their own. This is why every year Hope House Counselling Centre rallies the community to give 60 children, between the ages of one and six, a party and their own wrapped gift.

The Cape Town non-profit offers counselling services, play therapy, substance abuse intervention and prevention programmes to some of the most vulnerable children in the city.

“We see cases of abuse, depression and trauma all year round – this annual event is an important way to bring some joy to these children,” says Judy Strickland, child counsellor and founder of non-profit Hope House.
