Across The Oceans Run

Across The Oceans Run

Personal message

Across The Oceans is an event setup to connect fellow runners and walkers across the world on the 22nd August for a good cause. All funds raised will go to a home for abandonded babies in South Africa.

Home Meah is a registered with the Department of Social Development as a Child & Youth Care Centre in Newcastle KZN, South Africa. The Home was founded in 2010 and provides temporary safe care for abandoned, neglected and abused babies and toddlers.  It is also registered as a not for profit organization and in terms of section 18(a) of the Income Tax Act.

The Home provides 24-hour care for 20 babies/toddlers and this includes babies that are affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases. The Home employs 6 full time and 4 part-time staff members and is managed by a management committee that represents the local community.

 The subsidy received from government is limited and therefore the facility needs to rely on the support of the community and its own fundraising activities to make ends meet.  One of the biggest needs is to obtain specialized medical care for our children. The majority of the babies/toddlers needs medical care when admitted and we only have access to limited medical services.  There is also a need to take care of our building in order to ensure that it is save at all times.
