Just In Time Baby Sanctuary is a place of safety for abused and abandoned babies from newborn to 2 years. It is a registered Non-profit- and Non-government Organisation (185-968 NPO). The house was officially opened on the 27th of August 2016. Since its inception, Just In Time has helped 33 babies with 9 babies currently in its care.
The circumstances of the babies who are placed with Just In Time by the court varies from abandonment to neglect and abuse. The sad reality is that on average 40 babies are abandoned each month in Gauteng alone. Sometimes these babies lay in state hospitals for months where they are cup fed and they may not be picked up for any other reason other than to be fed, changed or bathed. There simply are not enough safe care facilities to cater for all of them.
And we are walking - 3 months ago you were admitted for acute severe malnutrition and multiple organ failure - you weighed 5 kgs. Today you are a feisty inquisitive busy little man who keeps us on our toes - once again proof of the power of love and prayer 🙏Posted by Just in Time Baby Sanctuary on Wednesday, 7 March 2018
