THANK YOU to the following
HOPE CLUB MEMBERS for making a difference!
Guardians of Hope is a dedicated place of safety, providing care for vulnerable children who have been abandoned, surrendered at birth for adoption, destitute, or palliative aged from newborn to 6 years. Our mission is to meet their physical, spiritual, medical, and psychological needs comprehensively. We strive to spread hope within our community, ensuring that vulnerable children receive the care they deserve and that our community is aware of our presence and support. Our commitment extends to providing a loving home environment for 30 vulnerable children, and we actively work towards family reunification whenever possible. In cases where reunification is not feasible, we support adoption processes, ensuring that the children find a nurturing and permanent loving family.
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.
