The children looked after in

Blessed Gérard's Children's Home

receive lots of tender loving care which most of them lacked before they came to us because they were either orphaned, abandoned, abused, neglected or are HIV positive.

There are more and more AIDS orphans due to the AIDS pandemic in our area. Our temporary accommodation can only cater for ten children and it is full. We would like to help more of these desperate children. Therefore we need to construct a bigger facility to give them a home. Like a building is made out of bricks, our new children's home will be built through tender loving care.

A Teddy Bear symbolises a motherly hug.

You can help us to give such a hug by buying a symbolic Teddy Bear.

We ask you to buy one or many Teddy Bears for R10 each.
