Luthando Orphanage & Child Care
Luthando Orphanage & Child care was started in 2016 by Victoria Cosa for the orphans and vulnerable children from the Du Noon and Joe Slovo informal settlements in Cape Town.
Luthando is a registered NPO but depends on generous hearts to be able to keep her house going. She is not able to get grants for some of these children as they don't have birth certificates. She provides not only a safe home and loving environment but has to clothe and feed them too. These children that are in her care; from the time that they arrive with just the torn clothes on their back; depend on her and donations to be able to succeed in their lives. She transports them to school; does homework with them and they have a far better standard of life had they not been taken out of their environments.
She currently has 12 children in her care from the ages of 10 months - 17 years.
