Our Mission

The Centre’s mission extends beyond immediate care, focusing on rescuing children from poverty, restoring their dignity, and eventually reintegrating them as empowered individuals into society. The Centre prides itself on its values of compassion, faith-driven service, and a commitment to transforming lives.

Over the years, the Centre has seen numerous success stories. Hundreds of children have found a home at the Christ Church Christian Care Centre, receiving education and forming a personal connection with Jesus Christ. Many of these children have gone on to complete high school, and some have even pursued higher education, embodying the Centre’s impact on their lives.

Support Our Cause

Donate to our cause and our volunteers will have enough supplies to save all children in South Africa.

More About Our Team & Our History

Mike Sunker took on the role of pastor at Christ Church in Hillbrow. He quickly recognized the urgent needs of the community, particularly the homeless and destitute children. This led to the establishment of a soup kitchen and a special Sunday service, marking the first steps towards what would become the Christ Church Christian Care Centre.

Mike Sunker, along with Renu Sunker, were the foundational pillars of the Centre. Their vision was to offer more than just physical support; they aimed to provide holistic care that encompassed educational, emotional, and spiritual growth. In July 2000, this vision took a concrete shape when a property in Hillbrow’s Berea section was acquired, offering a safe haven for children.
