At Christian Social Services (CMR)
East London we believe every life matters and each individual has the power to change the world for good.

CMR has been serving hurting children and families in East London quietly, consistently and reliably since 1955. We are a reputable welfare organisation with a trusted record of service excellence, whose mission it is to become a tidal wave of hope.

CMR East London serves East London families by providing child protection, prevention and early intervention services for 66 years. We also run a safe house for abused women and their children, VICTORY HOUSE, Place of Restoration, as well as an extensive HOME FOOD SECURITY programme sponsored by Wesbank.  As from May 2018, CMR East London has also taken over the social and community support services previously rendered by Child Welfare in East London.


The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for food

Victory House – Place of Restoration – is CMR's home for abused women and their children. A place of healing and time out, this is a safe space for victims of rape, human trafficking and other abusive situations who begin the slow and often painful process of deep healing and restoration.  MORE
