The Abraham Kriel Children's Home Nylstroom is a non-profit organization that takes care of 170 children who have been removed from the custody of their parents due to neglect and/or abuse and placed legally in the care of the children's home.
The children of Abraham Kriel Children's Home attend eight different schools and each has its own uniform and list of stationaries. Unfortunately due to our financial situation, we can not meet these different needs. It is of utmost importance that our children get the same opportunities as the other children in their schools. You can make a difference in a child's life by helping us to equip them with the necessary stationary, backpacks and uniforms for 2021.
The financial impact of an extended national COVID-19 lockdown on the Abraham Kriel Children's Home in Nylstroom (AKK Nylstroom) has become extremely burdensome.
The limiting and the loss of income from donors and the broader community mean that AKK Nylstroom’s ability to meet the needs of the children are now under threat.
In order to make up for the shortage of funds, a Children’s Emergency Fund is created to try and limit the financial impact of the COVID-19 lockdown measures and make it safe for these children in a time of crisis. The AKK Nylstroom plans to get as many individuals as possible to contribute.
We care for 170 children who have been removed from the custody of their parents due to neglect and/or abuse and placed legally in the care of the children's home. We have a vision that children may be cared for to become happy, healthy and well-disciplined members of the community taking the needs of others into account. Abraham Kriel Children’s Home, Nylstroom, has a mission that children of all denominations should be cared for according to the holistic approach, taking the constitution of the country into account so that the physical, religious, educational, welfare, and social needs of the children may be met.
Abraham Kriel Children's Home Nylstroom's first and primary priority is to meet the children's physical needs like food, clothing, toiletries and electricity.
The unit cost per child is R6600 per month. This is the total expense of the children's home divided by the number of children, which includes food, clothing, toiletries, water and electricity, cleaning materials, medical care, transport, maintenance of the buildings and terrain, salaries, etc.
We ask the public to open their hearts to our children this new school year and give them an equal start. Please make a donation to give our children hope for a brighter future.
