The Florida baby home is a non profit organisation that has dedicated their time to helping abandoned babies become part of a family. Some of the YAPS members together, visited this loving home, where we spent the morning playing with 3 babies, 6 months and 8 months old respectively.
The baby home offers safe and loving temporary accommodation were they care for babies found abandoned, affected and/or infected with HIV/AIDS or released by their mothers with the view of adoption.
These babies need all the love and attention together with food, blankets and toys to help them grow into a safer and stable environment and home. Assistance from anyone is welcomed by the house mother, and volunteers to help make life a little easier for these little ones.
• The Villa Lubet Children’s Home (UMephi) is a government subsidized Children’s Village and has been in existence since 1977. It’s a radical departure from the old institutional / dormitory consent. House parents as substitute parents, care for the children in houses or baby units in different areas of South Africa. There are 71 satellite houses in areas located where there is a need and close to support systems. Each home is specially equipped to give the special care every child needs.
• Every UMephi Home is supported and managed by a team that is trained and dedicated to give specialized and loving care. A household is usually under the care of a house parent couple, supported by a team of care givers as well as a group of volunteers from the community and local churches.
• In our baby homes we offer safe and loving temporary accommodation and care for babies found abandoned, affected and/or infected with HIV/AIDS or released by their mothers with the view of adoption. They are transported weekly to the clinic and hospitals for various check-ups and inoculations.
• Our Ultimate Focus is to find a FOREVER FAMILY for our very special babies.
• Florida Baby house can house up to 13 babies ranging from birth to two years and has 8 full-time child care workers plus one reliever, who work seven days on and seven days off. This means that at any time, there are at least two persons on duty.
• We are very dependent on the assistance from our local communities and volunteers to help make life a little easier for these little ones.
