What Others Did To Help

  • An elder lady named Miriam Chabalala decides that she can help with all the abandoned/runaway children so she starts a crèche. (Crèche- A nursery where babies or children are cared for.) She took in children and in 2007 she had 48 children that she cared for. Pastors would come in and give them corn meals and teachers would also give them cabbage and rice. She said she is a "Home Based Care".
