How Joining Hands began
Chris and Carina van Heerden have volunteered as Place of Safety Parents since 2006. They wanted and hoped to make difference to an abandoned child’s life.
“It is import that every child in need should have the opportunity to experience the love and stability provided within the family unit. At Joining Hands, children in crisis have the opportunity to become part of a family again. We have adopted two children and are fostering one.”
Over the years, Joining Hands has helped 50 babies. They opted to take in four babies at a time, which are up for adoption, on a short term basis. This however has not always been the case, due to number of circumstances, some of the children have stayed up to 17 months.
