The Home requires a monthly average of about $120,000 for its operations. About 30% of this cost is provided by the Ministry of Social & Family Development as a grant based on the number of children in residence.  However, the major part of the Home’s operational costs is funded by donations from corporations, organised groups and well-wishing individuals.

We are appealing for donations to defray the costs of operating the Home and running the programmes and support services to the children, specifically you may like to support:
