Camp Name: Orphan Care Support
Camp Number: SAVWA 0053
Participants: +/- 5
Dates: Open From January 2020 to December 2020
Type of Work: Providing support and care to orphans and improving their
emotional situations and their level of acceptance with daily
routines at either one or two orphanage homes called New
BeginningZ (Laudium) or Kingdom Life (Attridgville).
New BeginningZ has been in operation since 2001, with the
main focus being Children living and working on the streets.In
2003, due to HIV/Aids Pandemic they included Child Headed
Households to their focus group and in 2004 they had to
include yet another vulnerable group - abandoned babies and
Kingdom Life Children’s Center . A good-hearted woman
resident in Atteridgeville realizing the urgent need for caring for
the children in the area with no other place to go has
established this home. Initially time and effort was invested in
establishing, registering and organizing the affairs of the
Home. The main focus currently is to create better
opportunities for the children to develop in a stable and caring
environment, and to improve their life skills.

Volunteer Tasks: It is of paramount importance to us to render services and
programs that is in the best interest of every individual child.
Just as soon as you think you've seen the worst of cases, you
come across yet another one. Abusers don't discriminate
against colour, creed or age. Child Abuse is rife in South Africa
and unfortunately not nearly enough is being done to protect
the future of our country, the children. Government is shirking
their responsibility when it comes to providing for destitute
families therefore making it increasingly difficult for the poorest
of the poor to survive.
Abuse & Poverty are the main contributing factors to street
children and abandoned baby statistics in our country.

and cleaning the house. Other activities will be mentioned with
