In recent weeks, we’ve welcomed no fewer than eight new children into our ‘family’ of boys and girls. And with winter’s chill already in the air, all of them need warm tracksuits, jerseys and jackets, fleecy pyjamas, socks and slippers.
Ranging in age from three to nine years old, most of the new kids arrived here with little more than the clothes on their back. Some of them have never owned a pair of warm PJs or slippers in their lives before!
Staff have been busy sorting through all the kids’ clothing … keeping items that are good enough to hand down to the smaller children. But wear and tear have taken their toll on most of the clothing. And there’s a long, long shopping list of new items to be bought.
Please will you help, by making a donation towards winter warmth now?
Along with warm clothing, we also need to make sure the medicine cabinet is filled with cough syrup, paracetamol, vitamin supplements and other essentials to keep winter colds and flu at bay.
Plus, there’s extra food to be bought. During the colder weather, appetites increase and the boys, especially, get very hungry. We like to give them a bigger helping of porridge for breakfast and a warming cup of soup and a sandwich when they come home from school.
But it all costs money – and that’s why we must ask for your help now.
Despite years of unbelievable hardship and neglect in the past, our boys and girls have learnt to trust that here in our Home, there will always be something to eat, a warm bed to sleep in, and clothes to wear. We can’t let them down.
So, please will you make your contribution now towards warm clothing, flu remedies and extra groceries?
Thank you for caring about children who’ve been abused and neglected in the past – and helping to change their lives for the better.

Through our Developmental Programmes, we are able to build on their strengths by equipping them with appropriate skills in development, leadership training, mentoring and general life skills.
We maintain regular contact with all these schools through our Social Workers & Child & Youth Care Workers – ensuring that our children achieve their educational goals from primary school to high school.
