Baby at the volunteering project in South Africa

Special Care for Babies program


The baby center, which was founded in 2008, is a registered non-profit organization and offers unwanted babies a safe, loving home and the opportunity to be adopted. The project can accommodate up to six babies (0-2 years) at the same time. The well-trained staff looks after the babies twenty-four hours a day.

It also supports young mothers who have problems taking care of their children. It offers them emotional as well as advisory support and supports them with valuable tips for dealing with their children.

In addition, the project provides babies in need in the local hospital with food and diapers and offers working mothers birth assistance through emotional and physical support. After birth, Adaliah Care helps to strengthen the bond between mother and child.

The project’s vision: 


The home can accommodate up to 12 babies, from newborns to toddlers. They are carefully looked after here every day and receive the care they desperately need. Unfortunately, state support for children’s homes is very low, so the project relies on donations and the help of volunteers. So here you would make a valuable and much-needed contribution. The project is grateful for any help. Here you are at the right place if you would like to work for the fact that these babies have a positive, stable and, above all, loving environment during their time in the project.
