WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
SPONSOR A COT PROGRAM
Each child costs us an average of R7800* (about $500 USD) a month to provide for. To help us cover these on-going expenses, please consider signing up to be a monthly sponsor. In exchange for a monthly commitment of $100 a month (or more), you will be assigned to one of our six cots/cribs. And with every new occupant of that cot, you will also gain access to a private galley of videos, images, and information about that child which will not be shared online anywhere else, as well as occasional thank you gifts through the mail.

TAKEALOT WISH LIST
If you'd like to send us physical items that we need, please visit our takealot.com wishlist. These are items we could really use to keep Abba's House functioning at it's best. Below is a link showing step-by-step instructions for how to use this website (for those not familiar with TakeALot.com). Please email us if you have any questions about using this website or this wishlist.
We are currently in need of several items! If you're local to Jeffreys Bay or Loerie and have any gently used baby supplies, please contact us by email and we'll happily make a plan to pick them up. We even have a few donation drop-off sites in Jbay to assist in the process. Just message us and we'll be happy to share that information with you as well! To see specifically the items we need on a regular basis, please click the link below.
If you're interested in supporting us from outside of South Africa, please consider giving financial support or visiting our wish list on TakeALot.com.
We are always in need of financial donations at Abba's House. It takes a village to raise these young souls in a positive environment. If you'd like to give a one-time donation, or sign up for a monthly donation, please visit the link below. All donations are currently being overseen by Shepherd's Staff Missions Facilitators for accountability and tax purposes.
In an effort to cover the costs of starting up the Baby Haven, we have set up an online giving campaign through GoFundMe (in America). Every dollar raised in this campaign will be used to make repairs around the farm home to turn it into a safe, secure, lovely home for the children awaiting placement - as well as helping us find ways to be more and more off-grid (saving future costs). To donate to this initiative, please visit the link below:
In the months to come, we hope to offer small groups from the US (and other countries) an opportunity to stay in South Africa for 1-2 weeks working with not only the Abba's House project, but other local ministries as well. If you are interested in visiting us, please message us below for more details.
