Be their miracle

Our “Angels” are people or organizations who make a monthly contribution to support raising a single child at Open Arms. Angels make a lasting difference by supporting a child at the Home and developing a relationship with that child, usually for many years.

Open Arms Angels are critical to the successful provision of love and care to every child at Open Arms Home for Children.

A $100 contribution per month ($1,200 annually) supports the costs of raising a child in our care.


After enrolling, you will receive a welcome packet with all the program details and the assignment of a child to you.

Thank you for considering being an Angel to one of our kids!

  • Physical needs such as food, clothing, and doctor’s visits

“The only ones among you who will be truly happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”

Can I correspond with my child?

If you wish, you are free to send correspondence or small care packages to your child. We only ask that any gifts be of minimal value so as to not impact the other children at the Home. We encourage you to send a photo of you or your family which will be placed on our “Wall of Angels” at the Home.

The mailing address for Open Arms Home for Children in South Africa is:
Your child’s name at Open Arms Home for Children 

P.O. Box 165 
Komga, Eastern Cape 4950 
South Africa

Because of the shipping costs to South Africa, the U.S. Postal Service offers the cheapest way to send a letter or small package. Letters currently cost 80 cents to send to South Africa. Mailing rates for small packages can be checked at

Will I receive specific information on my child’s health?

Due to your child’s right to privacy, reports on the child’s health will be limited to general descriptions of your child’s condition. Most of our children are in good health, but some are HIV positive and we keep this information confidential so as to keep the child’s future free of potential stigma and prejudice in their own culture.

How often will I receive information on my child?

The Open Arms Angel program provides 3 reports per year on the progress of your child. In addition to the enrollment report, you can expect one in the spring and fall. We will send a new photo of your child with each report.

Can I sponsor more than one child?


What happens at the end of my year-long commitment?

You will be sent a no-obligation renewal kit that will provide the opportunity to continue sponsoring your child. We thank you in advance for your consideration of this renewal opportunity.

What does my support provide for my child?

The $100 per month provided by Open Arms “Angels” helps us meet the basic needs of the child you are sponsoring. 

Specifically, it provides for:

  • Three healthy meals a day
  • Tuition and uniform costs as a local pre-school or primary school
  • Clothes and shoes
  • Diapers for the younger children
  • Basic medical care including medications
  • Love and security!
