WHY WE HELP
The topic of unwanted and unplanned pregnancies is not one easily discussed and is often shrouded in secrecy and shame.
Baby dumping, as it is so cruelly called, is a well-known problem in Namibia. The result is most of the babies die and the women go without essential post-natal physical and emotional care. The women also suffer through their pregnancy alone and are desperate.
This loneliness and despair leads many women to attempt to abort their babies in extremely dangerous ways which leave many of them scarred, both physically and emotionally, for life and the babies either dead or damaged.
HOW WE HELP
Providing loving counselling, support and training for all women and men in Namibia facing an unplanned pregnancy.
It is our mission to save the lives of unborn babies by helping their hopeless mothers, educating communities on adoption and foster care, and providing skills training to mothers facing an unplanned pregnancy to assist them in caring for their child or children.
Many of the women we serve are unemployed so a sister project is our Business Starter Project where we try to help the women earn an income so they can support themselves and their children.
