Abraham Kriel Children's Home - Modimolle

Abraham Kriel Children’s Home – Modimolle (Limpopo)

In November 2003 we were made aware that this childrens’ home were in desperate need of gas geysers for the girl’s bathrooms. The rising costs of electricity were putting the home’s finances under severe pressure, added to which the continual electrical outages meant that their girls had been showering in cold water though out the whole of winter!

Naturally we were more than happy to donate the two 20l gas geysers they needed – photos of the girls’ smiling faces after their first hot showers in months were the most incredible reward for us!

 

The Abraham Kriel Children’s Home is situated in Modimolle (Nylstroom) & provides a place of shelter & protection for neglected, abused & orphaned children of all races. The Abraham Kriel Children’s Home follows an holistic development approach to child care & development by focusing on the individual’s strengths. The needs of the total person(s) are of paramount importance & treatment is done by a multi disciplinary team where all family members, the child and the community are recognized. Networking is done so that all people involved may give their input to work out the best possible IDP for the child.

All the children in the care of the Abraham Kriel Children’s Home have been traumatized by physical &/or sexual abuse, home violence, death of one or both parents, poverty, alcohol abuse or drug abuse and a lack of parental skills. The home provides all children with ongoing therapeutic counseling by offering individual & group therapy. The home has a school on the premises & children requiring special classes are transported daily to Nuwe Horison, Nuwe Hoop and Thusanang schools. Regular meetings are held with the schools that the children attend to discuss progress of children.
There are fifteen houses on the premises where the children are accommodated according to gender and age group. Each home is under the supervision of the ‘House Mother’ who also lives in the home & endeavours to create a homely atmosphere, under the guidance of child care workers. The home provides three healthy meals per day and takes responsibility to clothe the children appropriately. Health care is provided by a clinic on the premises from where referrals to hospitals are done if necessary.

The Children’s home works very closely with all relevant government departments, as well as church communities.

The Children’s home employs a social worker to do community services, for families of children in the area who require help & support in taking care of their children.
