WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL GATE LESOTHO
Beautiful Gate Child Care Centre, Lesotho (Le-soo-too) typically serves 50-60 children from zero to five years of age, e.g. abandoned, orphaned, HIV/AIDS affected and other vulnerable children. $2,000 per month will provide for the care needs of ten children, including a house-mother and caregivers from within the local community, a nurse, daily supplies (diapers, food, clothing), medical supplies, day care programs and pre-school programs, as well as regular maintenance and administrative salaries.
With the help of the Lesotho Department of Social Welfare many children have been adopted internationally and locally into forever families desiring to shower them with love and assistance. Beautiful Gate has room to expand and serve more children but they need more help. They need YOUR help.
Lesotho (le-soo-too) is a landlocked country and enclave, completely surrounded by its only neighboring country, the Republic of South Africa.

Local Childcare Centre Closure Brings Beautiful Gate Over Capacity
At 9:30pm that same night, the government pulled up with the 12 children; the house mothers ran to them, swooped them up and brought them in for a meal and for baths before tucking them into bed. Two required immediate medical attention, the others were moderately sick and malnourished, but now in a safe place at Beautiful Gate.
Then, the next day, another new arrival: a 3-day old baby. Now, the centre is well-over capacity with 71 children in their care and they are in need of additional financial support to care for these children.
