This year, join Call 2 Care and gift your 67+ minutes by supporting the incredible women, children and staff of Carehaven Shelter. Carehaven Shelter is a safe sanctuary for victims of abuse, who often flee with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Call 2 Care wants to remind these brave women that they are loved, accepted and not alone, and can do with your help!
You can contribute your time, effort or help in two ways:
Call 2 Care is looking for donations of basic toiletries, sanitary products, children’s toys (especially boys), and prams for the women and children’s centre at Carehaven.

2. Volunteer and help on Mandela Day
On Mandela Day, Monday 18 July 2022, Call 2 Care is hosting a Pamper and Picnic day for the women and staff of this incredible institution. They will spoil these ladies with mini facials, manicures and an outdoor picnic on their lovely lawns.
Call 2 Care is looking for the following volunteers to help with the Pamper and Picnic:
- Nail technicians
- Hair dressers
- Beauty students
- Any enthusiastic volunteers with a steady hand ready to paint nails, apply face masks or do a mini make over!
Due to the nature of this facility, they can only accept female volunteers on the day.
If you can’t help with your time and skills, you can still contribute to the day’s activities by donating necessary equipment for the Pamper and Picnic. Call 2 Care will need the following tools and products on the day:
- Nail polish, nail files, acetone, nail buffers
- Face masks, toners, cleansers, face sponges
- Eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick, makeup brushes, foundation
- Hair brush, hair dryer
- Hand Towels
- Bowls for water
These items can be new or used, except for face sponges which need to be new for hygienic reasons.
Snacks and refreshments will also be served on the day, so you can also help with donations of:
- Pastries, cupcakes or cookies
- Fruit juices, cooldrinks or water
- Fresh fruit
These donations can be dropped off at the same collection points as above.
It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it.
