Traumatised, abandoned, neglected and orphaned children are committed into the care of Abraham Kriel Childcare by the Children’s Court.

Our main aim is:

  • to provide a home to these children
  • to help reunify these children with their parents/family where possible or to reintegrate them into the broader community
  • to develop and empower children so that they can become contributing members of society.

A commited child is:

Removed from the parents or guardians’ care by the court due to neglect, drug abuse or alcoholism, imprisonment, abandonment of the child or sexual or physical abuse.

  • These children’s parents cannot care for them or provide for them due to:
    – Extreme poverty
    – 
    Health or disability reasons
    – 
    Abusive home situations
    – 
    behavioural problems in the children
  • Orphaned children
  • Abandoned children
