 We Support the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage 

The Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage (FTTRO) is the first purpose built rhino orphanage facility in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.  

Run by the world renowned Lawrence Anthony Earth Organisation and housed in the Thula Thula Game reserve, FTTRO was the brain child of Lawrence himself.

In 2001 two rhino orphans, named Thabo (male) and Ntombi (female) were translocated to Thula Thula following their rescue and initial care. Under the loving and dedicated care of the Thula Thula staff, the two rhino orphans were successfully raised and released back into the reserve , allowing them to live a natural life in their natural habitat.

The process was not a simple one, and the risks of raising rhinos in the middle of the worst poaching crisis in history became a reality when poachers struck one night. Thankfully the poaching attempt failed, although Thabo was shot in the leg and it took him around one year to fully recover.

The experience of raising Thabo and Ntombi convinced Lawrence and his team that there was an urgent need for a purpose built, dedicated rhino orphanage, and in 2015 the Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage was ready for operation.

It was a bittersweet moment as everyone involved would wish for nothing more than the facility to stand empty due to a halt to the poaching and no more orphaned calves. But in reality FTTRO will be looking to expand its capacity before it closes its doors.

With the first intake of rhino orphans now being cared for by the FTTRO team, Helping Rhinos is proud to be supporting them by providing financial support and raising international awareness.

We are also proud to exclusively offer you the chance to adopt one of the rhino orphans at Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage.

We Support Children with Cancer

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation was established in 1979 as a support group to parents of children with cancer, by parents of children with cancer. 

Having experienced the immense emotional and financial toll that cancer takes they recognized there is more than one victim in the family of the child with cancer.

 Their aim was to ease the burden on parents facing the same journey by providing access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support.
From the onset CHOC provided support in the hospital wards, hence the name Children’s Haematology Oncology Clinics, or CHOC. 

Gradually parent groups were set up in other key centers, where the major state-funded academic hospitals are located and pediatric oncologists practice.

In 2000, these regional entities merged into a national organisation. CHOC now has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 13 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. With occupancy steadily increasing our budget for maintenance and running costs of the accommodation facilities in 2015 will amount to R7.132 million, with each facility costing over half a million and we have a total capacity of 66 030 bed nights per annum.

We do not receive funding from government but rely heavily on donations from caring corporates, individuals and parents of children with cancer. Funds raised are used to provide all-encompassing support – from direct practical help to the children and their families and those involved in the treatment – to necessary equipment.
