Need Response

BABY's 1st Box

3 500 babies are abandoned in South Africa per year. Already vulnerable by birth, our babies then face uncertainty until we are able to find them safe and loving arms to protect them.


R10 550 received so far. Target is R17,000.

Each box costs R850 and we would like 20 boxes.  

In these crisis situations we depend on ordinary people supporting us in extra ordinary circumstances. 

We want to provide our abandoned babies with their 1st box filled with everything they need to be cared for, an opportunity of hope and a special letter of love.



We raised R186 000 at our Golf Day

As all will understand, Covid-19 restrictions prevented us from hosting any fundraising events in 2020 which had a devastating effect on our income and we therefore rescheduled our 2020 Golf Day for the April 2021 following the relaxing of restrictions to Level 1.

This was followed by our Annual Golf Day on 18 November 2021 which was an amazing day.  There was much excitement on the day with our teams, sponsors and supporters out in full force at the Germiston Golf Club!

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the unending support and generosity - we raised R186 000 for our children.

A special mention for our Board Members, organisers and sponsors for all your efforts to make this event such a huge success.

If you missed out on the fun this time or would like to take part at our next Golf Day - please keep an eye on our social media for more details.

Thank you once again.

Truly Grateful

"This is the home I got as from early childhood. I'm fully grown today because of their support. I'm working now as a call centre agent. My hope is one day giving back ... Helping kids who are going through what I went through"

Sonny Cele Beneficiary

I don't know whether or not you still remember me. Thanks to your support and assistance I became a student at Reunert College in 2015. I was reflecting and contemplating on what Child Welfare Germiston did for me and on how patient you were with my case. I'm truly grateful and a million "thank you's" will never be enough. I am a biomedical engineering student at the University of Witwatersrand and everything is going well ...

Janet Gapare Biomedical Engineering Student

We have been your clients since the year 2000 as foster parents. Three of our foster children are now adults and your professional service and support helped us and them to be responsible adults. We want to thank Child Welfare Germiston from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did for us. May God bless you and give you strength.
