Prevention & Intervention

PREVENTION

One of the icons of our work is a device called a baby safe. Check it out under Design Concept.

We manage some of our own baby safes, but also network with existing groups in high risk areas, training and equipping them to install and manage their own baby safe. COULD YOU USE A BABY SAVER IN YOUR AREA? Contact us to learn more about joining Baby Savers SA

  • Baby Savers counters infanticide by providing alternatives to desperate mothers. We intervene in South Africa’s baby dumping crisis by providing a drop off point (the baby safe), where a mother can leave her baby anonymously, legally, and safely, 24 hours a day.
  • We network to provide babies with immediate and excellent care at local private baby homes, safety families and then with permanent, loving families through adoption. www.adoption.org.za
  • IT IS OUR AIM TO CONNECT WITH AT RISK WOMEN BEFORE THEY GET TO THE POINT OF DUMPING THEIR BABY.

INTERVENTION:

  • Baby Savers is equipped to intervene with abandoned babies that are found alive. We work with social services, the police, and other community resources to provide immediate and safe care for abandoned, abused or neglected babies.
