About This Project
The Christine Revell Children’s Home, running since September 1975, is based in Athlone, a suburb 5-10 minutes drive from Cape Town City Bowl, Western Cape. The Children’s Home is registered to care for 49 abandoned, abused, neglected or orphaned children from birth to 5 years old irrespective of gender; race; religion or HIV status.
Christine Revell facilitates their emotional rehabilitation to cope with the effects of abandonment, neglect and abuse; give the children a home with lots of love and stimulation with the help of others.
Day visitors are very welcomed on prior consultation. A tour trough the building takes approximately 20-30 minutes, possible in the morning from 8h30 – 12h00 hrs and between 14h30- 16h00hrs. Monetary donations are needed and used for operational costs: baby formula milk, first aid box requirements and replacements, special medication and ointments that are not provided by state hospitals; fruit and vegetables, cleaning material and lots more.
