Helping children experience this incredible journey

The children at the St Laurence’s Children’s Haven experience love and care in a secure and warm environment. They receive three cooked meals a day, bath or shower daily, attend local schools, and are supervised by trained house parents who are approved by Child and Family Welfare – for many of the children this is a first home experience in their young lives. Under these conditions, the pain and trauma they have suffered very soon passes, and they adapt to becoming young, healthy, caring and balanced children.

The Old Mutual joBerg2c are proud to support the Haven. Each year, we offer the opportunity for six Haven children to experience this incredible journey across South Africa. Each day the kids can volunteer to apply chain lube to 800 bicycles. This is exhausting but lots of fun. The whole experience is about boosting their confidence and to get them to interact with people from all walks of life.
