Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Hundreds of new-born babies are dumped in the trash, discarded in ditches, and stuffed in plastics bags throughout Cape Town, South Africa.
From 2010-2014, Danielle and Nick Thomson decided to make a difference by joining All Nations Community, a non-profit organization creating multiple ministries throughout Cape Town to help those in need. For four years, they helped save hundreds of African children, women, and men.
Nick Thomson joined Soteria, helping men overcome their violent and abusive behaviors. Danielle Thomson joined Baby Safe, a volunteer-based organization preventing baby dumping, supporting pregnant women in crisis, and overseeing a network of baby safes—drop boxes where women can safely and anonymously abandon their babies.
“I have always had a heart for broken women and children,” Danielle Thomson said. “When I heard about the issue of baby dumping, I knew it was to the women and children of Africa that I wanted to invest my time and service.”
During Danielle Thomson’s time with Baby Safe, she says she saw more than 600 women and put up many children for adoptions and foster care to find permanent homes.
Danielle and Nick Thomas’ service to these organizations have been recognized throughout the Tulsa community. This includes local dentist Dr. Mike Hinkle who gives them free dentistry whenever they visit Tulsa.
"Danielle and Nick's work IS truly a blessing TO COUNTLESS FAMILIES IN DISTRESS," Dr. Hinkle said. "Hopefully, we at Utica Dental helped in some small way for them to continue their work without dental emergencies and dental distractions."
Even though Danielle and Nick Thomson completed their time commitment at All Nations, they are looking forward to the future with a new ministry, continuing to help those in need.
