Zanethemba baby and children’s home

Zanethemba means 'to bring hope' in isiXhosa.  We are a haven based in Walmer in Gqeberha providing temporary safe care for abused, abandoned, or neglected children from newborn to 6 years old.   Children are removed from their families and then placed in our care with a court order.  We provide therapeutic services, education, nutrition, access to medical assistance, and, most importantly, love, in order to show children how to trust and love again.
