We’ve been researching and reading about our outreach location outside of Cape Town and came across the blog of the founder of the BabySafe Organisation, Bethany O’ Connor’s blog. She wrote this update on the ministry copied below:

8 babies who were abused, abandoned or neglected have been placed in loving and safe homes so far.
Countless new baby packs have been given away, including ongoing packs to the moms who come to hospital with absolutely nothing. Thanks to Baby Safe they now go home with the essentials, including a booklet on Infant Care and Baby Safe contact details.
Baby Safe is preventing baby dumping by connecting with the pregnant women before they give birth or immediately after. Over 125 pregnant women and brand new mothers have been served, including a dozen women scheduled for abortions who have changed their minds and decided to keep their babies or make an adoption plan.
Another baby safe has been installed in Jeffreys Bay and and a couple in the works for East London and Somerset West and one in Nambia, inspired by Baby Safe.
Intervening with neglected babies, supporting pregnant women, and empowering new mothers…Baby Safe is offering life, hope, and options.
That kind of sounds like a commercial : ). Its not…just my every day and my joy.
