Volunteer with Vin Groovin

 

#VOLUNTEERWITHVINGROOVIN PART 5

 

Community Hours SA invites you to Volunteer with DJ VinGroovin. VinGroovin has an absolute love for babies and cannot wait to spend time with all the babies who temporarily call Joshua House their home.
“It is so important to volunteer, too often we focus on what we don’t have, when we should be looking at all the things we do have. We need to be so grateful for all of our blessings and take the time to give a hand up to those who have a need in our communities”  DJ VinGroovin

 

 Join Volunteer with VinGroovin on the 13th of August at Joshua House from 9h00 to 13h00

Joshua House is a baby home that serves as a temporary place of safe care for babies who have not had the best start in life; they have been orphaned due to various circumstances (the HIV Aids epidemic being the main contributing factor), abandoned due to unplanned pregnancies, poverty, desperate situations or legally relinquished for adoption. 

Joshua House admits babies from 0-2 years old and these babies stay with them on a short-term basis (6-12 months), pending the legal and medical assessment process to find the best placement option for the child. During their short-term stay, Joshua House offers these babies love, emotional support, medical/nutritional care and stability for traumatised children. Their aim is to have a powerful and positive impact on their lives while they need alternative care, pending their permanent placement.


 

 How you can help:

Working with the babies, although is not easy, it is extremely rewarding. We thank you for the interest shown in volunteering with Joshua House. The giving of your time and love will leave a footprint on the lives of these babies, the sense of being loved and cared for at a time when they had no-one, and will ensure their future strength and success! 

The day at Joshua House will consist of the following activities:

  • Gardening
  • Washing Windows
  • Sorting out cupboards
  • Organising the storeroom
  • General up-keep at the home
  • And of course, spending time loving and playing with the babies

The volunteers will be spilt up into teams to make sure we complete all the activities Joshua House and Community Hours SA has set up for you.
