Our Christmas Miracle

Erin at St Josephs Home, Cape Town

Erin was introduced to you 5 months ago as one of our miracle children and she continues to inspire everybody who meets her. Erin weighed 1.9kg when she was admitted to SJH eight months ago. She was very weak and had to be fed via a nasal gastric tube.

Our little princess turned one 2 months ago and now weighs 6kg. As a result of a combination of love, medication, therapy and a good dose of nutrition, her progress is visible. Her head control has improved; she is able to sit with support for a short period of time and able to roll with minimal assistance. Her endurance levels have improved to such an extent she is able to maintain crawling position for 3-7 minutes as opposed to 20 seconds before.

Erin continues to thrive at SJH and this has been made possible by staff and volunteers who remain committed to changing the lives of our children.

God so loved the world that He gave us His only Son - we thank God for his very special gift.

Christmas Message from our Children

Children's Christmas message1

Christmas is a special time of the year where we feel an abundance of kindness, love and generosity. The holiday season brings the custom of giving, family, love, hope and appreciation for what we have.

We at St Josephs have been blessed as we have experienced an extended season of kindness, love and generosity during the year. It is our turn to say thank you to every single person who has given their valuable time and generous donations. Your kind support has brought smiles and laughter into the lives of our children and has enabled us to help them heal. We are grateful for all that we have received and our wish for you is that you receive the kindness and love that you have given.
