When someone we know is diagnosed with an illness or in the process of healing, we are often at a loss as to what we can do to help him. Sometimes all we can do is to let him know that we’re there for him, thinking of practical ways to show him support and care. Courage is the presence of faith, not the absence of fear. This box is a reminder for him that strength, courage and resilience reside within him. He is strong, he is loved and he is not alone. The items have been especially chosen to bring a little comfort and love to him during his journey.

The fruit and nuts of the Marula tree are very nutritious, full of vitamins and minerals. The Marula tree is one of the most loved trees in the African veld.
