Services to abused, abandoned, neglected, orphaned and vulnerable children
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.
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.
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 22nd April 2021 following the relaxing of restrictions to Level 1.
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 R145 208 for our children.
A special mention for our Board Members, organisers and sponsors for all your efforts on short notice 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 diarise the 9th September and keep an eye on our social media for more details.
Thank you once again.

"A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the kind of car I drove ... but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child" Forest E Witcraft (Teacher)
"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"
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 ...
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.
