It's always NERVOUS season with 20 kids!


It's the time of year where all parents nervously do budget calculations for Chritmas gifts, perhaps a family getaway or some other way to treat their little ones. Money is held aside for the never-ending list of school supplies for the new year. What’s left over of the December bonuses immediately transferred to a university savings accounts. In South Africa’s economy, two or three children have quite an impact on a household budget. Never mind 20. This is the challenge faced by Mama Maya owner of ‘Home of Hope Place of Safety for Orphans’ where she pulls all her resources together to provide for her 20 orphaned children. Not just in December, but every single day.

We are trying to raise the funds for a bigger vehicle to enable her to do all her rounds, any contribution will be appreciated!
