We partner to support the orphaned and vulnerable child transition homes and the running of a breast milk bank, the first of it’s kind in Southern Africa. There are two transition homes to care for 12 babies and children, aged newborn and 3 years old, who have been abandoned/orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS. The aim is the reunification/adoption of 5 – 8 orphaned/abandoned babies and children, into permanent families, each year. The breast milk bank provides the nutritional needs for HIV orphaned babies.
The project provides loving care to babies and children who have been orphaned or abandoned as a result of HIV/AIDS and facilitates the children’s adoption or reunification into loving family homes of their own. Children are given the care they need in iThemba Lethu’s transition homes until they are healthy, and until a loving family is found.
