What We Do

Beyond addressing each child’s unique health and wellness needs, Marang House is committed to fostering their education, friendships, and joyful experiences, ensuring their illnesses do not hinder their overall development. We operate a single house in Parktown, serving children aged four to fourteen from various hospitals across the Johannesburg region. As a registered Section 21 (non-profit) organization, Marang House relies solely on external funding to provide these life-sustaining services.

Our Mission

At Marang House, we’re all about making a real difference in the lives of seriously ill children. Our mission is simple: we provide a safe and loving home where these brave kids can thrive and learn to manage their illness.

Our Approach

The reality for children suffering from chronic illnesses is a harsh one. Many families simply cannot afford the constant medical care, supervision, and suitable environment required for their children’s well-being. The road to overcoming these illnesses seems like an uphill battle, filled with daily routines of testing, dialysis, and the uncertain waiting game for organ transplants. In 1998, Marang House emerged as a beacon of hope, dedicated to bringing light into the lives of South Africa’s seriously ill children.

All support is welcome!

Marang House thrives thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors and supporters, as we do not receive government funding. Fundraising, corporate partnerships, and the dedication of volunteers are the vital forces that sustain the positivity and warmth woven into Marang House’s fabric by our devoted staff and friends. By supporting Marang House, sponsors not only make a tangible difference in the lives of South Africa’s seriously ill children but also gain tax-deductible benefits and the opportunity to contribute to their BEE scorecard points.
