Our care is divided into two broad categories:

  • The first is focused on providing a loving and caring home for orphans, disabled, abused and HIV/AIDS infected/affected children, which is known as Amadea Safe House.
  • The second part of Rina’s work involves reaching out to destitute rural and local communities though provision of essential needs and people development projects.


More About Amadea Safe House

Children are cared for until the juvenile court’s investigation is complete, and in many cases they stay longer because there’s no space in orphanages. With limited capacity in orphanages, there is a continued increase in the demand for more space at Amadea.

Rina believes that children need to be nurtured to build their creative, intellectual and physical growth. Yet under her care they receive much more than this. Amadea provides a loving home. Some of the children has been with the Malan’s for more than 16 years.

Rina also acts as a mentor for  Hiv/AIDS home based care organisations to which she supplies food and an educational programs, and she assists with feeding schemes in the surrounding areas.

She says: “Fourteen days after I opened my home I had fourteen children in my care. And I haven’t looked back. Words cannot describe the satisfaction that we have derived from seeing little broken human beings become whole again.”

Amadea provided a place of safety and love for approximately 300  children over the past 16 years. Currently our children’s ages range between babies and 17 years.

The heart of Amadea Safe House is to provide a home where not only the physical but also the spiritual and emotional needs of these children are met by the Rina and Philip.
New admissions: children between the age of 0 and 5 years. Also special needs children.
