Tracey Lange's #WCW: Monica Buitendag, CEO of Heartlands Baby Sanctuary

Written by: Zaakirah Rossier

Every Wednesday on her mid-morning show, Tracey Lange interviews her Woman Crush Wednesday #WCW.

Tracey Lange chats with Heartlands Baby Sanctuary's CEO, Monica Buitendag about the challenges that arose when the sanctuary was forced to close all of its sustainability projects during the lockdown in South Africa.

To raise funds, the Heartlands Baby Sanctuary started the CEO Challenge (Circle for Running to Raise) which ran over 10 days with a fundraising goal of R5,000 for every 5km run. At the end of the challenge, the sanctuary had raised over R100,000 – a whopping R50,000 more than its initial goal.

Heartlands Baby Sanctuary provides care, support and development to vulnerable young children and their families which include high impact health and care services, effective psychosocial services and opportunities to achieve developmental milestones in as short a time as possible.

If you'd like to make clothing or cash donations, please visit the Heartlands Baby Sanctuary website.

CATCH WCW ON TRACEY LANGE'S SHOW, EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 10.35AM!
