  • Donor Testimony

    “There can be little more heart breaking than a child in need. Fortunately, there are places like Heartlands Baby Sanctuary, a safe and happy place where these most vulnerable people can be nurtured. The dedicated and warm-hearted staff provides each child that enters this first-rate facility, however briefly, with all the love and care needed to help bring them back to vitality, giving them a better chance of flourishing during this vital stage of development. ”

    “We gained insight how important the work in the baby sanctuary was and followed up the development of the children from the committal to the release. We saw the shiny eyes, We saw the physical strengthened small Bodies. We saw the result of what the program did to the children and to the community.There was no doubt, when Monica Buitendag approached us with the idea to continue her work for the children, that we will continue our help and support as nothing has changed in the need for these children. ”
