Equipping vulnerable mothers to nurture new life.


Located in the Helderberg district of the Western Cape, Mama Themba offers essential antenatal & breastfeeding education and support to mothers who wouldn’t otherwise have access to such care and services.



Over the years we have been extremely encouraged by the continued support ​​received by sponsors, friends and family near and far ​towards ​Village of Hope.


There has been a definite shift both globally and regionally towards community-based care for children whereby families are encouraged and supported to take care of their children within the family fold.​ ​After much deliberation, over a period of time, it is the intention of our Board of Directors to discontinue our Village of Hope project​.​


​If your support to the work at Thembalitsha has always been in favour of children​, please rest assured that​ we​ will​ continue to serve the most marginalised in the community through our Educare Centres providing essential Early Childhood Development​. ​Please do let us know if you have any concerns or questions around this and we will gladly respond.


Thank you so much for continuing to support the work of Thembalitsha Foundation.



Taking healthcare to our vulnerable community members.


Located in a rural area east of Cape Town, ThembaCare Grabouw serves as the only overnight 24-hour hospice facility in a town of 65,000. This seven-bed hospice is designed to provide quality palliative care for those who are terminally ill and whose lives have been devastated by HIV/AIDS and TB. We also have a dedicated team of home-based carers who make daily visits to more than 350 people a month, living with HIV, TB and chronic illness in the informal settlements of Grabouw.
