Emilies Charities

Investing in children's futures

South Africa

Holy Cross Cape Town

The Holy Cross sisters in Cape Town, South Africa look after orphaned and abandoned children (one or more of the parents of whom in many cases died of AIDS or in drug related murders) from the townships. At 18 the youngsters leave the orphanage and the Holy Cross Sisters run a house to look after them and give them a chance for further education. This is all financed by voluntary donations.

Emilie’s Charities sponsored the higher education of eight young adults from the home who did courses in nursing, tourism, secretarial work, environmental health, sport management, physiotherapy, car maintenance and conservation.
