    Fundraise for us

Celebrating Mother’s Day recently made us think about mothers ... what they mean to us, and the sacrifices they make for our greater good.

It’s sad to think that not all children have access to their mothers, for one reason or another. They have to turn to others to fill the void.

And when the children in question have suffered in ways that no child should, it takes a very special ‘mother’ to help heal the huge emotional, psychological and sometimes physical scars.

Just like real moms, our dedicated child care givers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 a week 365 days a year to provide the stability and love all children need in order to thrive. But it costs R275 a day to give our children a loving parent.

That’s why we’re looking for kind and caring people like you to “Adopt a Mom” for a day. By making a monthly contribution of R275, you’ll make a huge contribution towards the loving, warm and nurturing environment we strive to create for our children.

Times are tough we know, with the cost of living putting increased pressure on many households. We are extremely grateful for any support you can give. It is a real investment in the children of South Africa and their future.

Without you we cannot heal the hurts and grow our children into happy, well adjusted and successful young members of society. So please, will you make your donation now?

As a registered Public Benefit Organisation, donations to the Johannesburg Children’s Home are tax deductible in terms of Section 18A . For businesses, our BEE profile is 86.67% ensuring maximum points on your company’s score card too. So giving to our children is not only good for your heart - it's good for your pocket and your business!
