Huis Van Heerde

“Huis Van Heerde” is a Child and Youth Care Centre (or Children’s Home as known by many) in Moorreesburg, South Africa. Moorreesburg is a town within the Swartland District and is also part of the so-called “West Coast “ District.

Huis van Heerde Child and Youth Care Centre (CYCC) accommodates 70 children from birth to 18 years (or until a child is no longer attending full-time education). All children/ youth are placed with Legal Orders by the Children’s Court of South Africa. Children are placed because they are in need of care and protection.

Huis Van Heerde is a programme of Badisa , which is a Non-Profit Organisation and Public Benefit Organisation managed jointly by the Dutch Reformed Church (“N.G. Kerk”) of the Western and Southern Cape and the Uniting Reformed Church of South Africa (URCSA or known in Afrikaans as the “Verenigende Gereformeerde Kerk”).

Huis Van Heerde’s caring today…. makes a difference to tomorrow. You are invited to read more about who we are and what we do…. and to join us in our efforts to make a difference!

Saldanha Animal Care

Saldanha Animal Care is a non-profit, all-volunteer, foster home-based organization. Our mission is to treat pets and/or rescue lost, homeless and abandoned cats and dogs from our community and the surrounding area. We care for, protect and provide the animals with medical care, including spay or neuter, until adoption into a loving, permanent home.

As a non-profit organisation, we are fully dependent on donations from the public. Although we manage to collect money our very high vet accounts swallows 95% of our fundraising monies

We currently have 55 fur-children at the shelter. Some of them have been there for 4 years and will most probably stay with us forever. We do not give up on them. To feed these little monsters we utilize 30kg dry food per day. We therefore need 45 x 20kg bags per month. Running medical expenses in the form of sterilizations, inoculations, deworming and daily care amounts to no less than R20, 000 per month.

Saldanha Animal Care is fortunate to have an elderly gentleman that stays on the premises without electricity in a very simple Wendy house that we managed to put together from odds and end. He takes care of our fur-children 24 hours, 7 days a week. We have managed to rig up a solar system that provides enough power for lights and a laptop inside Wendy. The current is not strong enough for a fridge.
