Support Group

A support group is effectively held once a week for the infected and affected folk in the coomunity.

As with any disease, support mechanisms around those affected can mean the difference between coping or not.

Coping skills, as well as stress management, healthy lifestyle and counselling will be addressed.

We are accredited child abuse counsellors, HIV counsellors and can be contacted about this service to the community.

"All the days ordained for me were written in your book."
- Psalm 139:16

Every year, over 10 000 babies are abandoned in South Africa.

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children,” late president Nelson Mandela once said.

A mother will usually only leave her baby if it is the only option she feels is available to her.

  • Roughly 3 500 babes are abandoned each year in South Africa, or 300 a month (number only includes survivors)
  • For every 1 baby found alive, 2 have been found deceased
  • 70% of abandonments are unsafe and many babies are never found
  • Since April 2020, 62 babies were found deceased, according to media reports or articles
  • 65% of abandoned children are newborns



The work days are long and the nights even longer, but the staff sing songs of Jesus and their pure sweet voices ring out like angels, bringing healing and deliverance one baby was at deaths door the doctors said, “just hold him” and he is thriving and putting on weight this is only possible with God as man cannot heal him!

"With hindsight, we realise that by overcoming our cowardice and visiting the home, we are richer for the experience. Nothing could prepare us for the warmth and love that radiates there."
