Born to Care launches their Orphaned and Vulnerable Children Project

After Born to Care's outreach to Touch Communities in Rustenburg during May (read about it here), Born to Care could help but not acknowledge the wonderous new calling from God to launch our own OVC Project taking care of the Orphaned and Vulnerable Children in the Greater Delmas Community.

Communities who came out to train our volunteers

In almost no time, our team at Born to Care trusted God and plunged into the deep end! Straight off the bat, we were blessed in receiving 10 "care givers". These care givers are volunteers that “take care” of families near their homes. Our care givers visit their respective families enrolled in our project on a weekly basis, evaluate their needs and through partner networks in our community we strive to meet these needs.

Why we felt such a great desire to launch this project
At Born 2 Care, as a Pregnancy Crisis Centre, we were caring for those involved in an unplanned pregnancy situation and related crisis, and through our activities we felt as though we were merely patching holes in a bucket continually being filled with water – only dealing with the symptoms and not curing the deeper disease.

Training
Not long after launching, Rosalie and Angela from Touch Communities agreed to present our care givers with the initial training they will need to effectively fulfill interventions in our orphaned and vulnerable children as well as provided us with data capturing systems. Thank you so much Rosalie and Angela for your guidance, patience and support!

With the aid of our care givers and the support of the community, we strongly believe we can fully bring transformation in the Greater Delmas Community by reaching out and tending to the children, especially the orphaned and vulnerable, and make every effort to help build a brighter future for our community.
