Rising from the ashes of apartheid to a non-racial democracy, South Africa is now plagued by AIDS, crime, and poverty. We were guided by the Lord through an internet listener in Indonesia to an amazing work taking place in Johannesburg. Door of Hope is a ministry that rescues, cares for, and loves children that were abandoned by their mothers for any of a number of reasons, including AIDS and poverty. Partnering with this amazing ministry, Compassion Radio partners purchased a beautiful suburban home to house and lovingly nurture infants who have been rescued from abandonment in garbage dumpsters in and around the Berea and Hillbrow areas. More than 2000 babies have been rescued thus far through “Door of Hope.” The majority of the babies have been adopted or fostered within the country by believing parents, raising these children to be the future of South Africa.
