Guardians of Hope, place of safety
Our Official Local Charity
Guardians of Hope, place of safety for abandoned babies is our Official Local Charity and very close to the heart of Gussie Eberhardt, who is personally involved with Guardians of Hope on a regular basis. PnA Stationers East London is also a monthly cot sponsor, donating R6 600.00 per month to Guardians of Hope, to supply the monthly needs of one baby. Currently they have 6 babies in their care.
Guardians of Hope Place of Safety, which will be officially opening on 1 July 2017, is a non-profit organization that takes care of abandoned babies. The Place of Safe takes care of 6 babies at a time as per the legal requirement. The babies are between newborn and one year of age. The home is beautifully laid out to ensure that all the needs of the babies are catered for spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally. Our babies are placed into our care by East London Child Welfare, CMR and Social Development.
Our vision is to ensure that abandoned babies will be cared for with utmost love and care and be placed within loving, caring families that will further enhance a great future for the babies.
Our mission is to love and value our abandoned babies. Be the caring wings sheltering them. Be the shield that will protect their lives and rights and to be the instrument of bringing them hope.
The estimated cost to care for one baby per day is R220. This covers all overhead and caring cost. Our organization depends on the generosity of the community to function and relies on volunteer workers to assist with the love and care of the babies where possible.
We would love you to be on board as a “Giving Hope” sponsor by providing financial assistance or you can assist with the baby care needs list. There is great advertisement opportunity should you become a “Giving Hope” sponsor, so do contact me for more detail should you wish to really make a difference in the community and get great exposure for your business at the same time.
