Welcome to our website!

Zanethemba (isiXhosa: ‘to bring hope’) is a baby haven where we provide temporary safe care for abused, abandoned or neglected children from newborn to 6 years old. It is a sad fact that a service like this is necessary in our South African context. 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.

We hope that you enjoy taking a tour of Zanethemba and we look forward to hearing from you.
