Guardians of Hope Place of Safety was established on 01 July 2017. The home can take care of 6 babies, however with the influx of abandonment can at times have up to 12 babies. We provide a home, love, and care to abandoned, destitute and babies given up for adoption. Where-ever possible we seek and support family reunification. Where this is not possible, we support permanent fostering and adoption.
The babies are between newborn and eighteen months of age. The home is beautifully laid out to ensure that all the baby needs spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally are catered for. The babies are placed in our care through Christelike Maatskaplike Raad (CMR) and Social Development.
Guardians of Hope has eight caregivers, a domestic worker and Elaine Brenkman, the founder of the organisation supervises the staff and manages the day to running of the home.
We have a Midwife, who visits the home weekly to check the babies over to ensure that they are growing well and that their developmental milestones are met.
We also welcome volunteers to come in to shower the babies with love and care.
