Johannesburg, 6 August 2020: Determined to fulfill its mission to bridge a better world through providing a home and safety for abandoned babies, the Door of Hope organization has, for over 21 years, remained committed to its mission.
Recording over 1,700 babies helped, 73 babies in care and 740 facilitated adoptions, the organization is playing a critical role in addressing the abandonments of infants across South Africa. Supporting Door of Hope’s plight to provide care to the most vulnerable in our society, this Mandela Day, Centurion Law Group donated supplies to the organization.
‘’At the core of Centurion’s heart and vision, is our resolve to have a lasting impact on our people on the African continent, to lend a hand and empower them where it is needed,” said Shantel Mufandaidza, Head of CSR at Centurion Law group. “Our firm supports the work that Door of Hope does for abandoned babies across South Africa and we thank them for their continued dedication to this cause,” she added.
As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has rallied together and proven that humanity still exists. Through a small act of kindness, we can all assist those less fortunate and vulnerable in actively partaking and circumventing the challenges brought forward by the pandemic.
As Nelson Mandela once said: “Our children are our future and one of the basic responsibilities is to care for them in the best and most compassionate manner possible.” Therefore, it is our responsibility as a society to ensure we continue his legacy, assuring our children are protected, taken care of and given every opportunity available for them to excel and contribute positively to society. As they are our future leaders, doctors, teachers, scientists and caregivers, it is our responsibility as society to play a crucial role in paving their paths and securing a better tomorrow.
