Second Chances

We are busy establishing a house in Paarl which will serve as a temporary safe care facility for babies before adoption. Babies will be in our care from birth to approximately 1 year-old. My intent is to start with six babies who will rotate as and when they are adopted to make room for new-borns.

I am affiliated to Norsa, a NPC in Wellington in the Western Cape, which trains temporary safe care parents for babies (TSCP – Temporary Safe Care Parents).

I took in my first baby in March 2018 and she was in our care for 15 weeks. It was a wonderful time. Currently we have a twin (boys)....

The experience led me to the decision to start a house to accommodate more than one baby. To make a difference in one little life was rewarding, but the need is much greater.

Currently we are eight temporary safe care parents in Paarl/Wellington/Malmesbury and it doesn’t fulfil the need. The need is very big and we dont have enough funds etc.....

We cant upload videos/photos due to privacy and identity.....
