House of Thembiso
Thembiso started in February 2007 out of a desire by both Doxa Deo Langeberg and Durbanville Baptist Churches to make a difference in the lives of children with special needs. This joint venture between the two churches falls under the guidance of the uMephi organisation. By July 2015 a total of 158 children have been taken care of in Thembiso. The house itself has been provided by uMephi while the monthly running expenses and all other needs including salaries and improvements to the property are met from various sources including regular and once off donations (in cash, kind and services) from church members and other people in the community as well as from companies. In addition a small amount is received per child from social welfare and overseas adoptions.
