Give vulnerable children in South Africa a future

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.

This critical work takes place thanks to the generous support of LIV’s donors. By giving today, you can help to change lives. Your monthly or one-off donations will directly make a difference to the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa.
