Sanctuary Care serves children aged 0 (yes newborns) to 8.

Sanctuary Care does not take on cases where child abuse and neglect is involved. Please refer these cases to MSF Child Protective Services at 1800-777-0000.

We would love to help as many children as we can but we simply do not have the resources. Therefore, each case referred to us has to meet certain criteria in order for us to be able to help.

I would like to thank Sanctuary Care for being a pillar of support to me. At first, I was worried about having my son with respite carers but they kept me updated on his time there. It really helped me focus on my studies and worry less about what would happen to him.
