Children's Home

The National and Provincial Social Welfare departments, the Children’s Court and the South African Police refer abandoned babies and children to Nazareth House. We currently have 30 babies and children in our care.
We are entrusted with caring for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs - we provide 24 hour care, housing, nutritious food, clothing, education, specialised nursing and medication.

Funding Helps us

Thanks to funding arranged by the South African Catholic Bishops’ Conference & PEPFAR and with the approval of the Health Department, all the eligible children started on an anti-retroviral drugs programme. This has been in place since 2004 and is having a huge impact on their well being and their ability to fight opportunistic infections.We are eternally grateful for this blessing and thank the funders for their generosity.


We strive to provide the children with as normal a life as possible. They attend the local nursery and primary schools, have fun playing in the gardens, riding bikes, going on outings, baking cakes, reading, watching TV and listening to music. (Some even receive horse-riding lessons, through the generosity of a benefactor.)
