Jogebed is the foster home of Upington that consists of 2 houses. One for the babies between 5 months and 2 years old and the other house for the older children between 8 years and 16 years.
Foster homes depend on donations from the community to make an existence and therefore it is important for businesses / individuals to open their hearts to such institutions. Every contribution, big or small makes a big difference in someones life. Kobus Duvenhage Bouers (Pty) Ltd calls on the community to open their hearts and hands to Jogebed for the incredible work done by them.
