Today we chat with Elsie Du Plessis who is the founder of Miracle Kidz Safe House in Cape Town, an NPO that houses abused, abandoned babies, and toddlers. We find out what she needs and how we can help.
Listen to the interview:
Our small team of five ensure that the house is not just a simple place for kids to eat and sleep, but rather a place to call home, make friends, and even family. Known for its incredible work in the area, Miracle Kidz has become a notable part of the community who continue to offer their support.
How to help Aside from grocery and clothes donations, you can volunteer daily, helping out in any number of ways under guidance from the team. However, they do encourage you to read up here a bit first on what to expect before you go to ensure everyone, including the kids, can feel comfortable. Companies can also do their bit by partaking in one of the current short-term (fencing the property, painting a room, tiling the floor, planting artificial grass, paving the driving) or long-term (sponsoring a child in a number of ways) projects available for corporate social investment.
Good to know You’ll need to get a police clearance form before volunteering, as the safety of the children is the number one priority.
