This GivingTuesdaySA, Kids Haven is collecting all donations to provide a wonderful Christmas to children and families who have endured so much.    

We are a collaboration of four Benoni-based charities working within the Benoni community to support vulnerable children and families.

  1. Home-Start SA focus on early intervention, starting by connecting families to resources and helping them reach their full potential.
  2. Kids Haven offers a second chance to children and youth who need care and protection after they have faced serious challenges in their family circumstances.
  3. Life Choices ensures that pregnant women and new moms have a place to work through their emotions, fears and future hopes.
  4. The Almond Tree provides a safe haven to abandoned babies and young children.

#GivingTuesdaySA Benoni Cares

Every Rand raised will be shared equally between our charities to provide a wonderful Christmas lunch to 200 children living in care at Kids Haven and The Almond Tree and to supply Christmas food hampers to families and young mothers through Home-Start SA and Life Choices Benoni.

“Around me I saw more and more children living in the streets. I noticed how damaged they were and how tough their lives were. It was my biggest wish to help them. I started small and simple; with twenty children, two mornings a week. But soon I realised more needed to be done; these children needed to get off the streets. So I started collecting money for a small building. Now, many years later, this is a professional centre. The people of Benoni and surrounding areas know about Kids Haven and no longer treat the homeless children like scum. When they see a homeless child, they call us. Homeless children aren’t criminals; they are children who never had a chance. We can still offer them this chance."  Moira Simpson Founder and Managing Director
