Door of Hope Children’s Mission making a difference
Doing their part to save abandoned babies and make a difference it their lives. Abandonment of infants in South Africa is, unfortunately, a common occurrence. In 1999 the Berea Baptist Mission Church said, “something needs to be done”. Under the leadership of Pastor Cheryl Allen, the church made a hole in their wall and a ‘Baby Box’ was installed allowing for mothers to leave their babies any time day or night for the church to take care of them. The moment a baby is placed, care workers on duty receive an electronic signal alerting them. The baby is taken in and the anonymity of the “donor” ensured. News has spread and other babies have been brought personally by their mothers or have come through other means such as the police, community members, hospitals or clinics.

Door of hope has 3 established Baby houses where babies can be cared for until they can be adopted or reunited with family. Always striving to help creating new families and homes, Door of Hope loves nothing more than placing a child with a new forever family.
Some children find their home at the mission Village and become part of the Door of hope family.
This initiative is supported by Röhlig-Grindrod, as it is a pioneering humanitarian cause.
