St. Joseph’s Home is an intermediate paediatric care facility for children with life limiting and life threatening illness, situated in Montana, Cape Town, South Africa. Most of our children come from informal settlements where clean water, electricity, sanitation and nutritious food are in short supply. Together with the parents/family/caregivers we rehabilitate children who have life threatening conditions and facilitate the child’s healing process.

We Care.

Our 175-bed hospital and 138 staff give the best health care to more than 500 ill children each year. Over the past 83 years, we have cared for more than 23 000 children. We are driven to reduce inequality in children’s health and wellbeing and believe that compassion is the most potent form of care .
