Thousands of babies are dumped every year in South Africa – 2 out of every 3 dies. We are on a mission to rescue as many as we can.
In 1999 we put a Baby Saver Box into the church wall, providing an alternative to unsafe abandonment. Hundreds have been saved but there are more that will need our help.

Without Door of Hope, many abandoned babies would be at risk of dying in Johannesburg. Instead they are cared for, loved and supported on their journey towards finding a forever family.Dee Blackie - Child Protection Activist
What makes Door of Hope so special is that it is a place where precious little lives find love, acceptance and comfort. The angels at Door of Hope name and nurture every child, and above all, fight for each one to have a future, and a hope.Robyn Wolfson Vorster - Child Protection Activist
It has been my pleasure to do the medical assessments of babies and toddlers at door of hope for more than 10 years. I find the standard of care and love for each baby very high. Each child is treated as an individual and staff show a high level of insight into their problems and needs. I am impressed by the ongoing assessment and improvement of programs and routines.Dr. Janet Lumb - Paediatrician
You are a beacon of hope to children not yet knowing that they are lost and a blessing to families knowing that there is a little angel somewhere meant for them to find and love with all of their hearts.Adele Chmurkowski - Kaenguru Foundation
