We are so grateful to announce that in 2017 over 16,500 people were reached by our ministry!

Here’s what happened in our House of Refuge this year.

THE STATS
House of Refuge: community LIFE programs for females of all ages!

  • Our House mom is fully trained and prepared to receive new moms.
  • Our Maternity Home is fully furnished.
  • We completed registration for the Maternity Home with the Department of Social Development (this will allow us to take in children of all ages).  
    • Now we await final approval!
  • Our pregnancy helpline received many calls, 10 of which required counseling.
  • We received an ultrasound machine from Flutter for our Mobile Clinic and four of our staff were trained in ultrasounds. We  provided our first 10 ultrasounds to new moms.

A team from LIFE International led a second series of trainings for the leaders who volunteer with us.

  • Journey of a Lifegiver (JOL)
    • This level II training reviewed the challenges our volunteers encountered during our National led training. It also reinforced teachings and increased confidence for our team to expand this JOL training to new pastors and leaders in 2018!
  • Post abortive counseling
    • This level II training helped our volunteers who work with our crisis phone line problem solve calls and questions.

THE TESTIMONY
House of Refuge | Life Program

At the beginning of the year we received an ultrasound machine that was donated to us from Flutter.  

June, Amanda, Busisiwe and Aimee were able to receive training on the use of the machine, early detection of pregnancy and measuring for dates with volunteers allowing us time to “practice”.  

Additional training was done through a pregnancy center in Springs to observe and hone our skills so we are better able to interpret what we are seeing.

To date we have be able to perform 10 ultrasounds and it has been such a blessing to see the joy on the mother’s faces when they see their babies on the screen.
