Contributed R16 000
Running costs

Atlantic Hope aims to provide safe, temporary and emergency care for vulnerable babies below the age of 1 year. These babies have been abandoned, removed from biological parents because of drug related reasons, neglected and/or abused and require care until such time as alternative permanent care has been sought and arranged.

They provide basic developmental, physical and mental care. Medical needs are prioritised, and babies are fed, kept warm, and given affection in a stable environment.

Atlantic Hope is legally approved to house up to six babies at one time, for short stays. They look to accommodate more babies for longer stays, providing care whilst legal decisions and proceedings determining the child’s future are conducted. This vision would require larger premises as currently we operate out of the founder’s home.
