El-Shammah Home for Abandoned Babies is a place of safety for abandoned, orphaned and neglected babies. It was set up in 2009 and accommodates up to 12 babies at a time ranging in age from birth to 18 months.

El-Shammah is in desperate need of help with its adopt-a-cot initiative.

The goal is to have 100 people donate R250 a month.

If you’d like to help, contact Alistair and Merencia Scholtz at 061 242 2709 or 074 942 1297.
