Last year we partnered with the Refilwe Community Project to help crowdfund for their El Roi Baby Home. We’re so grateful to everyone whose Different Donations went towards raising R148,000, which was needed to fund the salaries of four El Roi care workers for a year. Without the “aunties”, the babies and children at El Roi wouldn’t receive the love and care they need and deserve.
We wanted to give El Roi a shout-out for the incredible work they do, and also wanted to share a little more of their story with you.
THE STORY OF ABANDONMENT TO ADOPTION
El Roi Baby Home opened its doors in October 2012. Named for “the God who sees us”, El Roi is a place where we provide a safe and loving home for babies on their way to adoption. We currently are home to 12 babies who are in the process of being connected with “forever families” through local and inter-country adoption placements with help from Abba Adoptions. We are seeking to create a home environment where our babies receive all of the things they need to have a healthy, loving and balanced start to life. This is done through intentional bonding therapy and kangaroo care, daily one-on-one stimulation and physical therapies, on-site medical supervision and quality staffing.
