Working at Forever Angels can be tiring and emotional for our long term staff – some of them have done this job for over eight years!
Many people think working with children is easy, but every day our staff and volunteers go home exhausted after pouring boundless love and energy into our precious children.
Orphanages are very often criticised in the media for being loveless and for raising children who have no attachments. Thankfully Forever Angels can hold its head high knowing that simply is not true of the Baby Home.
Our children are deeply loved; they are educated and stimulated and given endless activities and entertainment in an enriching and loving home.
Thank you to our amazing staff and wonderful volunteers for their hard work, endless creativity and love.
It’s not just the children who have fun, our staff and Volunteers do too! Forever Angels Volunteers often leave us saying they have had the best experience of their life. They make life long friends and make lifelong memories. Many volunteers return to Forever Angels again…. We just can’t keep them away and it’s great!
