Heartlands Baby Sanctuary, based in Somerset West, Western Cape,
is a temporary residential safe care facility for 25 children at any given time.
We provide individual specialised care and support to children in desperate need of care and protection from birth to 6 years.
Children are placed with a valid court order from the Children’s Court.
These are children who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, orphaned, who are disabled and or are sick. In the past 7 years, we have cared for over 300 children.
Children who get a healthy start to life in the 1st 1 000 days and beyond are:
- 10 times more likely to overcome life threatening childhood diseases
- More likely to complete nearly 5 more grades in school
- More likely to go on to earn 21% more in wages as adults
- More likely to have healthier families of their own
