Show the love on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love in all its forms! Even though JCW children have endured trauma and hurt – we can help heal their hearts thanks to the love and support of our donors.

At Princess Alice Adoption Home, 30 babies have a loving first home; while 90 children have found happiness at Othandweni Family Care Centre. One of these is a cheerful high school learner, Lerato*. Lerato recently wrote us a letter to thank JCW for her happy childhood.

“Living at Othandweni has been amazing. I got to know myself and my ambitions, but mostly I got to know and feel the love of people who aren’t biologically my family. They made me realise that family is not by blood but by loyalty. They never gave up on us. They continued teaching us about life outside this loving home and the discipline lessons were never forgotten. I appreciate what they have done for me.”

We thank our donors for being part of our family ‘by loyalty’!

Valentine’s Day is so much better when you’re in our world!
