Life in lockdown in the homes has been busy with the Fairhaven’s Baby Home family with five small babies and two energetic little boys keeping the team on their toes. Thank goodness for a big garden, sunshine and our ECD ‘classroom’ Crisis Housemother Precious Thabete said proudly “I am so grateful to work with such loving and dedicated women who put the health and wellbeing of our babies and children first. Also thanks to Zanele and the ECD team, we have a fun plan in place for teaching our little boys, it helps keep them busy whilst having fun learning!”
Sadly as we read the rising stats and horrific stories of Gender Based Violence, so came the equally devastating increase in abused and abandoned children. Again, we count it an honour and blessing, to have been able to take in one extra little vulnerable baby as a Crisis Home and place of safety and temporary safe care.
At this time in our city, province and country – we also continue to pray and petition heaven for unity, wisdom and enlarged capacity for all the Child Welfare Departments, SAPS and Family Law Courts. We ask God for His sovereign hand to carry this burden and to make a way for these children and their parents/caregivers where there seems like no other way.
In closing a big thank you all those who made Mandela Day donations of nappies, wetwipes, Vaseline and food items to the homes and especially to the rugby legend Odwa Ndungane and Danville Girls High School learners
