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.
