It was both humbling and heart-warming to witness the kindness and thoughtfulness that individuals, corporates, schools and community groups showed to our little people over the holidays. Indeed, it was a festive season for them.

Every child had a new outfit; more than one present to open; good, nutritious food and enough milk formula to keep their tummies full and to help them grow. We won’t lie, they also had sweets and treats and all the good things too.

The ‘public’ responded very quickly and meaningfully to an emergency appeal on Instagram. We were in a situation where we could not admit five abandoned babies directly into our care but undertook to assist the social worker in raising sufficient nappies and milk formula to enable the babies to be placed into foster care at very short notice before the holidays. Our mission was accomplished and all the babies were in temporary family care, and not hospital cots, for Christmas. To all who contributed – YOU ARE ANGELS!

While our children are at the heart of everything that we do, their Christmas fun couldn’t happen with the unsung heroes, their caregivers, who continue to work throughout the holidays ensuring that they are well-cared for and sacrificing the time with their own families.

A very warm and sincere thank you to you all!

Mandela Day, or Mandela Month, is an opportunity to get actively involved in community service and to make a difference in a cause that is close to your heart. For the first time since 2019 we are at long last able to welcome volunteers in person, so if you are keen to volunteer with us, please contact TINTSWALO  to make arrangements.

 While it isn’t always possible for everyone to volunteer on the ground, there are other ways to show your support.

  • One easy way is to share our WISH LIST with friends, colleagues or community groups.
  • You may also consider running an online fundraising campaign for Princess Alice Adoption Home through our BACKABUDDY page. It is easy to register as a Champion and set an attainable target for both local and international donations.
  • Make a meal for our children or caregivers on duty, a little goes a long way.

 Which ever route that you choose, we hope that you have a fulfilling and meaningful experience. It is only with the help of others that we can do what we do to care for our little people.

Mandela Day 2020 Wish List

We are so sad that we can’t welcome volunteers on 18 July 🙁 The week surrounding Mandela Day is usually full of buzz, goodwill and people making a difference. But 2020 is what it is.

We would still love you to honour the day, even if it is in a socially-distanced way. Here is one suggested way to get involved, while keeping safe :

Honest Yoga x Princess Alice

Join us on 18 July for 30 minutes of Kids Yoga and Meditation hosted by Bendy Bodies Yoga & Mindfulness! All proceeds go to Princess Alice Adoption Home, caring for abandoned babies, toddlers and young children.

Bookings are open –  .

Mandela Day Online Kiddies Yoga and Meditation – here’s what it’s about:

In honour of Nelson Mandela’s birthday, celebrate with kids and donate to Princess Alice Adoption Home at the same time. The super hero themed class is open to children between the ages of 3- 12 with something for everyone. Parents and adult caregivers, family or friends are welcome to join in on the fun too! If you like to dress up, grab a cape as well as a mat. SEE YOU ON THE 18TH!

Project Rose Room Lucky Draw 1


Please support our Lucky Draw this month to raise the shortfall in funds for our proposed “Rose Room”. Tickets are R50 each.


The Rose Room will be the conversion of a former Birth Mom’s bedroom into a new, separate, more protected and more peaceful nursery room for the youngest babies in our care.

We care for 30 babies and young children. Their ages ranges from newborn up to three years old.

Recently, we’ve adapted to the needs of our older children , an age group that we have not traditionally provided for. Now we are focused on a creating a new space that will best serve the vulnerable younger babies.

We have the quotes. We have raised a substantial amount of funds for the project. But we have a shortfall.

To raise funds, The Four Seasons The Westcliff Hotel have kindly partnered with us to sponsor a Saturday Brunch for two at their Flames Restaurant. You can view more about the beautiful setting of the hotel here

Entries can be paid for in cash, by EFT or via Snapscan.
