Baby Moses is a registered NPO founded in April 2003 by Christo and Lani de Klerk.
The organisation’s main activities are to care for abused, abandoned and orphaned children of all ages in Gauteng and the North West Province in South Africa.
The aim is for children to grow up in families to bring some ‘normalcy’ into their lives.
The primary aim of Baby Moses is to provide a place of safety and stable, caring home ensuring that the children receive excellent care and hope for a bright and successful future. The children remain with Baby Moses until they finish school, or placed with rehabilitated parents.
The secondary aim is to provide support and physical care to children in very poor families or functioning child headed households (as identified by auxiliary social workers), rather than having them removed or placed in foster care.
Volunteers are welcome and student volunteers can commit to one school-afternoon or Saturday morning a week to help with homework, projects and reading.
Specialist Volunteers which include psychologists, psychiatrists, medical practitioners can offer services pro-bono.
Nurses to make specialised visits when necessary.
Photographers are welcome to record children’s lives and milestones when necessary.
