Babies are rescued in various ways, either by SAPS, Child Protection Services or from hospitals where mothers have either abandoned their baby or have safely relinquished their baby for adoption.

Babies often arrive unwell, malnourished and traumatized from neglect, abuse or the displacement from familiar faces.

Trauma causes a disruption to a child’s behaviour and can be detrimental to their health and well-being.

The Almond Tree focuses on providing a loving environment, nurture and consistent feeding which aids in the healing process.
