THE BRIGHT ONE was the right one!

Dear CRADLE friends

Blood, sweat and tears and a lot of praying proved that THE BRIGHT ONE was really the right one.

After months of praying, fundraising and hard work, the team at THE CRADLE OF HOPE was able to purchase the house better known as THE BRIGHT ONE, at 40 Nellie street, West-Krugersdorp.

The amount needed to pay for the house by the end of April 2016 was a total of R422 422-29.  We did not give up and after realising that the number 422 means “Covenant of Love”, we persevered and pushed through, with loads of Faith.  By the end of April 2016 and with the help of the community and a couple of amazing donors, we were able to buy the house, which will become an extension of our HOUSE OF RESTORATION.

The BRIGHT ONE will enable us to assist an additional 30 women and children in desperate need.

We would like to sincerely thank everybody that was instrumental to the purchase of this property.  A number of churches also came on board and assisted with wonderful donations.  THANK YOU!

We have loads more fundraising to do as we now have to clean-up and fix the house, as well as equip the house, at an estimated cost of R300 000-00.  This includes electric fencing, tiling, electrical re-wiring, replacing the roof and the broken windows and painting the house inside and outside.  After the refurbishment the house will be equipped for 30 persons, and we need to find beds, other household furniture and equipment, appliances, cutlery and crockery, and other general household goods.

Every day that a woman and her child sleeps in a safe warm bed at our HOUSE OF RESTORATION is a success story to us.  Help us to BE THE DIFFERENCE you want to see!
