The Orphan Program
ICare has adopted several orphanages and institutions like Safe Houses in various areas that care for orphans and abandoned children. Abandoned children are placed in orphanages if they have no extended family to care for them. Abused children are placed in safe keeping in Safe Houses via the courts. We provided for their needs either financially or in kind.
We are servicing several such institutions in the following areas:
Athlone Gugulethu New Woodlands
Beacon Valley Hanover Park Philippi
Blouberg Heideveld Schaapkraal
There are approximately 60 boys and 72 girls in these institutions, aged between 4months and 17years of age. These institutions are safe havens to abandoned & abused young children. They receive counselling, education, healthcare, love & understanding. Their aim is to fully rehabilitate & reintegrate the kids into society. The work that these selfless individuals do requires a total investment of all their Effort, Time & Money which is in short supply.
This is where the iCare Children’s Foundation steps in…we use our resources to assist these institutions. We provided for their needs either financially or in kind.
Every little bit helps…please consider activating a monthly debit order instruction today or call our office and donate directly and help Abandoned – Abused – Orphaned – Underprivileged children.
ICare Foster/Parent Program
In the Social Services Departments current Foster Programme, the courts place abused & vulnerable children in the care of a Safe House for a stipulated period of time until suitable Foster Parents are found. Due to the increasing interest of our Orphan Programme the ICCF intends to initiate, with the help of the Social Services Department, a data base of potential Foster Parents for this programme.
