Providing the most basic of human needs . . . a place to call home
In the one square mile squatter community of Kayamandi, South Africa, 50,000 people live in deplorable conditions. Over 50% are unemployed and more than 40% are HIV positive.
Hundreds of desperate children have been abandoned and neglected, many having lost one or both parents to the ravages of AIDS. If nothing is done, these precious children will live-out their lives without hope and become victims to the cycle of poverty that plagues this community.
Our mission is to provide safe and loving homes and a sense of belonging to these forgotten children – a place where they can find the hope of a bright and independent future and learn of God’s love. This is God’s calling on our hearts. This is what fuels our passion.
