His Little Lambs - The Farm
His Little Lambs, also known as The Farm, is a Christian care centre for abandoned, abused, neglected children in Pietermaritzburg in eastern South Africa. His Little Lambs was foundend in 1995, starting off with sheltering 4 children. Today, the care centre has taken in nearly 70 children.
Since January 2012, The Farm has been working together with Be More, a Dutch non-profit organization. Since then volunteers have been coming to the project. The volunteers help the children wherever they can. In the mornings the volunteers help out in the day care and in the afternoons homework classes are offered to the children from the age of 6. The volunteers have free time during the nights and weekends. If they like, they can organize all sorts of activities for the children.
Don and Linda Mckenzie are the owners of the project and have founded His Little Lambs by themselves, without any help in the beginning. The children belong to their family and would like to state the fact that the children are part of a huge, loving family and are not in any way part of an institution. A lot still has to be done on The Farm and you can contribute to helping this project in any way you see fit. Don and Linda will tell you more about their current projects when you decide you would like to volunteer at His Little Lambs.
There is never a dull moment at The Farm!
