To this end Finbond contributes to and is proud to be associated with Tswhane Place of Safety Association (“TPOSA”) which focuses on providing orphaned and abandoned babies and babies infected with HIV with good homes, frail care and shelter. Currently TPOSA have 110 Place of Safety families taking care of 240 children.

Finbond also made it’s property in Waterkloof Ridge [valued at R 3,9m ] available to TPOSA free of charge as a Safe Haven to accommodate children with medical problems (premature, HIV+, TB and Malnourished children). The haven cares for up to 16 children per month. For further info see: http://www.placeofsafety.org.za
