Umndeni WaBantwana - Family for Children, is based in Ingwavuma, Northern KwaZulu Natal and was established in 2006 by Neil and Michelle Coetzee.
The Coetzee's offer Orphan and Child Care to the Ingwavuma Community, they have adopted 11 children and have two biological children. They have a creche on their property called Jacob's Ladder; Michelle started up an ACE School in the community called Khethani Christian School and they are the lead Elders in their church, Zonki'Zizwe.
The Coetzee's vision is to give a family to abandoned and orphaned children, to teach them about Jesus and His love for them and to prepare them for life - with each child knowing that no matter where they go they have a family they can always come back to.
"He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing." - Deuteronomy 10:18
