How Can I Get Involved?

We are absolutely thrilled about every person who wants to help us to care for our special babies. There are so many ways to get involved and to support us.

1. Pray for us!

We believe in the power of prayer. Please pray with us for the babies in our care, for our staff and their families, as well as for the needed funds and provision to continue the work. Our God is faithful to answer our prayers and we praise Him for his goodness.

4. Have goodies delivered to our doorstep!

Many online shops such as Takealot.com, Clicks online and Dischem online deliver goods to us. Deliveries can be sent to:

5. Host a fundraiser

A fun and interactive way for donors to generate funds for Butterfly Palliative Home is to have an event. This can be anything from asking your friends to donate goods or money to BPH instead of buying you a birthday or baby shower present, or more formal in the form of a fundraising event. Ideas for these include murder mystery evenings, fancy dress balls, sports or athletic events, arts evenings etc. All with the aim to have fun and raise support for our babies in the process. If you would like to host a fundraiser, please feel free to contact us for more information or out powerpoint presentation and promo video.

6. Volunteer!

Butterfly Palliative Home is always in need of on-site volunteers to help with our everyday activities. Volunteers can either be medical or non-medical.

Medical volunteers (of which we are in great need) include:

- Nurses
- Occupational Therapists
- Physio Therapists
- Speech and Language Pathologists
- Home-based Care Workers

Other activities for volunteers include helping to care for and stimulate our butterflies; food gardening; cooking; building and maintenance; fundraising; admin and tech support; as well as helping our staff with their own families when they need to tend to the butterflies.

We have accommodation in our rustic 4-bedroom volunteer house which is self-catering and free of charge to volunteers.

Anyone who has a passion for Jesus and for lending a helping hand is welcome to volunteer. We do prefer that volunteers commit to at least two weeks or more since it involves a lot of time and admin. But please pop us a message if you are interested and we can have a chat!
