In Khayelitsha more than 30% of pregnant mothers are HIV+. This means that there are many orphans and abandoned children, and often they do not have an extended family member to take them in. The community also has very high levels of unemployment, crime and shack housing.
We provide a place in our children's homes while the children (about 60% of whom are HIV+) are nursed back to health and other difficulties resolved. When they are well and ready to fit into family life we find and then support a 'forever family' in the community.
Orphans that might have grown up with serious social problems are raised in loving families. Every year we place 20 orphans with foster homes and offer short term residential care to 30 children.
