Cheryl Pratley Founder of Shepherd’s Keep


An ancient African proverb states that “it takes a village to raise a child”. At Shepherd’s Keep we care for abandoned babies and in order to do this we rely on donations from people like you! We are always grateful to our donors and their willingness to help us with this ministry—you are part of the village that is helping to care for these children. Our donations come from people volunteering their time, corporate groups spending a day working on bigger projects like maintenance and painting and our visitors who bring donations of baby food, formula, nappies and baby clothing. We are truly grateful to each and every person who helps us in some way to care for our babies, so that they will one day be able to fulfill the plans and destiny that God has for them.


PAG lend a helping hand

Brandon Nash and his team from PAG spent a Saturday at Shepherd’s Keep painting the nurseries, hanging new curtains and planting flowers in our new garden. It looks great and we are very grateful to Brandon and his team for their time, energy and effort that went in to a day’s work.

Evangelical Bible Church visit

A group of Believers from Evangelical Bible Church visited Shepherd’s Keep recently. They spent time singing and praying with the babies and staff and also brought a donation of nappies and purity, both items we use daily and are always very grateful to receive. Thank you for blessing us with your visit.
