Living in a small family unit with a dedicated foster mother and no more than six children, is the next best place for children who can’t be cared for by their own biological families.
On Friday, 18 August, the foster mothers of Home From Home were shown how much they are appreciated at a breakfast sponsored by Unitrans and the Kove Collection. The guest speaker was the inspiring Debbie Kirsten.
These women give vulnerable children the chance to stay in their home communities and culture, where their home language is spoken. They have a home and a foster family that supports and cares for them, in the hope that one day they will either be reunited with their biological families, or failing that, that Home From Home has provided them with the necessary grounding to build happy, successful lives.
These amazing women fully deserve their morning of spoils. If you’d like to support them and Home From Home, it’s easy to get involved, says Home From Home founding trustee, Pippa Shaper: “Visit our website www.homefromhome.org.za, like our Facebook page www.facebook.com/HomefromHomeSA, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our offices on 021 761 7251.”
