They have electricity in their homes but it’s also nice to sit outside under the tree and it is good advertising for them to be seen by those passing in the roadJ A lot of their monthly income is doing repairs, shortening pants etc in the township. So any old machines you know of we welcome. We are currently looking for the treadle part of an old machine – the machine we have is good but the treadle has passed on.

The September dental hygiene drive proved successful, and parishioners donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, towels and face cloths. SSVP distributed these items to grateful families in Diepsloot. Families in X12 broke into spontaneous clapping when they were told of this gift from the Bryanston parish.

Nature of the Society
The Society is a welfare organisation of the Catholic Church that is affiliated to, and operates in co-operation with, the world-wide Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, the permanent headquarters of which is in Paris, France.
St Vincent de Paul - Bryanston
The Bryanston Conference provides aid to those in need, regardless of race or creed. We are currently involved in the Diepsloot, Soweto, Cosmo City and Oliveinhoutbosch informal settlements.
Who we are
Our members (known as Vincentians) consist of volunteers who personally visit the needy, taking nutritional foodstuffs and clothing. Many of those who require our help are elderly, frail or disabled. We also assist people who need to attend a clinic and who require help with various applications at Home Affairs.
Our main source of income is from the generous parishioners of Bryanston Parish who donate money, food, clothing and other items.
The need in our society, however, seems ever-increasing, and we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to generate income.
Assisting those in need to help themselves
We firmly believe that it is important to empower the disadvantaged to eventually be able to provide for themselves. We have various projects underway, including the establishment of vegetable gardens, the running of tuck shops, shoe repairs and sewing. This is an incredibly rewarding part of being a Vincentian – watching someone become financially independent again.
Interested in joining or contributing?
If you would like to know more about what we do, or would like to assist in anyway, please contact Roy Hawkins on 082 440 6615.
