Heartlands Baby Sanctuary has been named the Best Childcare Service in South Africa by the Corporate Livewire South Africa Prestige Awards.
South Africa (11 September 2020) – In the last 5 years, the Heartlands Baby Sanctuary has offered temporary care and safety to 280 babies. The sanctuary’s goal is to temporarily care for a child and then reunite it with family, whether existing or adoptive.
In an average month, the sanctuary can go through 4800 nappies and 1900 bottles of formula. Staff and volunteers work 24/7 to ensure the safety of the babies and children. Throughout the lockdown, the baby sanctuary lost revenue from its donors and sustainability projects.
Despite the loss of income, the staff and volunteers continued to provide care for the babies within their care.
The latest news from the sanctuary has warmed our hearts! It was announced yesterday that Heartlands Baby Sanctuary had won the Best Childcare Service in South Africa, awarded by the international Prestige Awards, run out of the UK.
The Corporate Livewire South Africa Prestige Awards recognise small and medium-sized businesses that have proven to be the best in their market over the past 12 months.
All shortlisted companies are asked to support their nomination with evidence of their work, positive feedback from their clients, information on previous accreditation’s and recognition as well as highlighting the most outstanding parts of their businesses.
The judging panel base their decisions upon areas such as service excellence, quality of the product/ service provided, innovative practices, value, ethical or sustainable methods of working, as well as consistency in performance.
