Child Care Center - South Africa
The heartbreaking reality is there are 153 million orphaned and approximately 385 million children living in extreme poverty around the globe. In South Africa, this is widespread due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the region. Currently, there are 2.2 million orphaned children in South Africa, which is why Mom’s House is working tirelessly to improve the lives of these beautiful children. Right now, we are supporting over 5,000 orphans and vulnerable children in the Mpumalanga Region of South Africa, building child care facilities in 98 villages.
There are three projects we have in place where you can help us in our effort of providing a safe, loving and nurturing environment with a Mom’s House Care Center in the region. By sponsoring a project with your company, your family, your school and/or your community, you are committed to raising the cost of the project selected. This is a huge way to make massive impact in the region, and raise money with your peers.
