More about Door of Hope

Door of Hope is one of the organisations that receives and cares for the abandoned or unwanted babies from the inner city of Johannesburg, Berea, Hillbrow, and the greater Johannesburg area. We love and care for these babies until they find adoptive homes, either locally or overseas.

Interesting Stats


  • Our doors have been open for 17 years and we have managed to love and care for over 1500 children. Door of Hope is unique in that we have a “Hole in the Wall” where we have placed a Baby Bin / Safe, monitored 24/7, so that absolutely desperate mothers who want to stay anonymous can give their child a chance at life and place them in a safe place. From inception, we have had only 177 babies via the “Hole in the Wall” which is just under 12% of our children we have helped. Babies have also come to us via the police, community members, hospital social workers or clinics and mothers themselves.
