Relief for the Child-Headed Households
There are many children in child-headed households in Sweetwaters, South Africa. These are homes in which the parents have died or in which the parent is critically ill and reliant on their children for care and provision. Our partner ministry has established the Mobile Mothers' program in which young vulnerable children are placed in the care of a 'mobile mother’ who visits their homes and provides basic necessities.
List of Services Provided:
Food, clothing, monthly training/fun days for child-headed households, uniforms, introduction to health programs when necessary, assistance in obtaining child grants and school subsidies, food parcels, and other basic necessities.
