Blessed Gérard's Children's Home
A home for orphans and vulnerable children
The fate of many children in the wider Mandeni area, who are neglected, abandoned, abused or orphaned (especially because of their parents dying from AIDS), made the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard decide to start a new project: Blessed Gérard's Children's Home. It is a new home for children who otherwise would have no future. The home was already started on 15 June 2000 by setting aside three wards of Blessed Gérard's Care Centre for the home and employing two caregivers full-time, one of them is living in. The Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard wants to erect a new building for this purpose.
