Michael shines his light!

Michael epitomises the saying "dynamite comes in small packages". Doctors gave him a life expectancy of only 2 days, but in 2024 he will tackle matric!This great accomplishment makes it’s necessary to look back at the difficulties he and his family had to overcome. Michael's life testifies to challenges, disappointment and obstacles, but also to LOVE, caring and miracles. 

Jan Kriel School supports 550 children, like Michael, who knows the challenges and hardships of life, but overcome each obstacle and keeps building their life-puzzle.So I ask nicely, for the sake of every vulnerable child at Jan Kriel, if you would please sponsor a light on Jan Kriel's Tree of Lights? One light costs only R100- so maybe you can even sponsor a string of 10 or more lights?

These lights symbolize the LOVE, care and opportunities given to our children. Please use your name as reference when making an electronic payment. You can also make a donation safely through our website.


Jan Kriel's ‘Liggieboom’ Festival will take place on 25 November 2023 and on this special occasion Michael will be switching on all the lights. Please help us by sharing Michael's story with your family and friends, also inviting them to sponsor a light and show LOVE to a child at Jan Kriel.


Below is our free gift to you. Download these electronic Christmas cards to share on Facebook or to send to your family and friends via WhatsApp.

May your life-puzzle also be filled with pieces of LOVE.


Praying peace and love over you this Christmas
