Give your time to help rescue a child

The issue

There are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa who not only lack a stable home life, but also have few opportunities for a bright future.

What can we do about it?

It takes a village to rescue a child, and LIV uses this ethos to deliver a working solution through long-term cluster foster care, where children have a sense of belonging in a supportive community.

Orphaned and vulnerable children are placed in a family environment where all their needs are met by taking a holistic approach to physical, emotional and spiritual healing. There are homes nestled within communities all around South Africa, each with a foster mother to love and nurture the children, and a school to educate them.

Each home relies on the hard work of volunteers who give their time in all sorts of ways. From medical to ministry, teaching to sports coaching, your skills and involvement can make a huge difference. Take time to change lives, and be changed forever.
