There are over a thousand orphaned children in our area – left without care or protection or food.
Our Care for the Children programme looks at the needs of these children holistically: socially, emotionally, physically and academically.
Children are enrolled in our feeding scheme and given monthly food parcels. We also assist the children to apply for the waiving of school fees and to access documents such as birth certificates and identity books in order to apply for government grants.
In 2008, 307 grants were processed by the ACFS on behalf of orphaned and vulnerable children.
