Volunteer to assist local orphanage staff provide good care for orphaned children so they can live healthy, confident and positive childhoods.

Various social-economic problems like poverty, disease and neglect have turned many South African children into helpless orphans. The orphanages looking after the children are doing a good job of raising, feeding, clothing and educating the children. But most of these orphanages face shortage of funds and volunteers to help raise the children. Assistance is urgently required. RCDP International has been working in collaboration with local orphanages in South Africa to give quality life the orphaned children deserve. The orphanages need dedicated volunteers to help their work more effective and successful.
