Huis Maerua Children’s Home
Children are placed in the care of Huis Maerua due to neglect, abandonment, poverty, abuse or social unacceptable living conditions. We support children in all aspects of their lives: housing, food, clothing, school, transport, camping, social activities and medical care including therapy.
We strive to give our children the best upbringing and they are lovingly nurtured back to emotional and physical health.
Our motto is to give wings to our children
So they can fly!
Without financial support from the community we would not be able to make our children’s dreams come true.
Whilst we are a social welfare registered organization (WO8), we need financial assistance to cover about 60% of our expenses.
