Reaching Out to Orphaned and Abandoned Babies

Some of you may or may not know that iKhaya LikaBaba is something very close to our hearts.  It started in our home almost 4 years ago.  (For those of you who are Afrikaans, you can read our story here) We moved to Cape Town a little more than a year ago but since then, this home for orphaned and abandoned babies has just grown from strength to strength as a ministry of Solid Ground Church, our family in Empangeni while were living there.  They are truly changing the lives of children who previously would have had no hope or future.

These children are precious and in fact our daughter is one of those little ones who blessed us by joining our family.  Ruthie is our princess and our joy and we would never had such a precious child if it were not for iKhaya LikaBaba.

I know they are in KZN (KwaZulu Natal in South Africa) and some of you may be in Cape Town, others in other parts of the world -  but may I encourage you to partner with iKhaya LikaBaba (The Father's House).  And there are so many ways that you can make a difference to the lives of these children
*  Adoption
*  Foster Care
*  Sponsorship
*  Prayer
*  Partnering with your business
*  Debit Order

They have just created a new video so you can catch a glimpse of the remarkable, life changing work they do.

iKhaya Likababa is a Zulu phrase meaning, “House of the Father.” It is a refuge, a home, and place of family for orphaned and abandoned babies in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. At ikhaya, the children not only receive food and shelter but care is also provided to meet their physical, social, and emotional needs.

We at iKhaya are growing and we invite you to grow with us as we reach more and more orphans with hope and a future.

  1. Thank you for sharing and for linking up with us. We've never adopted, but it's very close to our hearts and we hope it's something we can do in the future!

  2. It is a big step and it hasn't always been easy but we would love to adopt more. My husband often says, there is always space for one more at the table.


Go ahead, leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
