picture: INHABITANTS FROM ONE OF THE HOUSES OF HOPE
We, that is my wife and myzelf, and the other directors of Heart for Children, have identified a serious problem regarding our youth. How do we handle the children that have been fostered and that have now grown up in a safe house – or foster home, respectively, and reached the age of 18 where they can no longer stay in these homes? The problem became first apparent in the safe house in Nelmapius that Heart for Children is sponsoring where there are 3 children who have reached this age now. We know that same problem also plays at the other homes that receive sponsorship from Heart for Children / Hart voor Kinderen (NL). We find that there is a serious problem in South Africa with the care for orphans and abandoned children once they have reached the age of 18. We are busy to see what others are doing to fill in this gap and came across this documentary from RSG. Click on the link in the box below.
