Close to our heart
Heart for Children
Heart for Children is putting its passion and love into the orphans of South Africa, who often have to live in horrible circumstances. Many children are abandoned and without a father or mother they are vulnerable for abuse and exploitation. Like every other child, they deserve a good future. Our aim is not merely to give the children a halfway house, but the security and stability of a full and normal family life.
To help them we need your help - we cannot do it alone. We need approximately R7000 to maintain one family consisting of a mother and up to six children. This will provide them with a home, food, clothing, medication, schooling as well as gas, water, lights and, above all, love and security.
WE ARE ASKING YOU FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO BUILD AS MANY HOUSES AS POSSIBLE.
