Found freezing and alone, Mpho is one of many children with a chance at a happy life thanks to Impilo Child Protection and Adoption Services.

Did you know that at least 2 out of 3 babies that are abandoned die?  

When police brought 18 month old Mpho to Impilo, she was frightened, exhausted, hungry, dirty and freezing cold.   Wearing only a nappy and a t-shirt, the toddler had been left alone by her mother for three days with the stove on.

Neighbours had heard crying from the shack all day long, and peering through a gap in the corrugated iron wall, they saw Mpho sitting alone screaming. When neighbours couldn’t get into the padlocked shack, they called the police who were unable to find her mother.

This wasn’t the first time Mpho had been left alone. When she was brought to Impilo, caregivers had to wash her four times before she was clean, and saw that her teeth were rotten and black. 

Mpho is now a happy, healthy loved child in a permanent family. With much needed support and funding from MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet Impilo cares for 200 children and is able to reach out to many more children like Mpho by providing care, food, shelter, child protection and adoption services.
