“We rise by lifting others” – Robert Ingersoll

Giving Back to the Community

Marisa Romanelli Owner | Romanelli Designs

My mom always said: “Never start a project or business simply to be famous or make money. Start anything in life to enable yourself to make a difference in others’ lives.”

I realised that the world isn’t always fun and games at a very young age. One year, after my parents celebrated a Christmas event at Abraham Kriel Kids Home, I was so incredibly touched by the situation of those children that I cried all the way home, insisting that we turn around and bring a little baby home with us. I still remember that little baby to this day.

My purpose in life was irrevocably changed since then. The material stuff does not matter, what will matter is that I had an opportunity to help others in need during my life.

I am incredibly blessed with a great family who supports me on every journey to change someone’s life and I am privileged to share this with my children so that they can also understand the importance of life. My greatest dream is that they will choose to continue with this passion one day when they start to make their own choices or run their own businesses.

Our motto will forever remain: “Do your best and God will do the rest.”

Here are our current philanthropy projects. If you would like to become involved, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Baby Moses Sanctuary

The plight of abandoned babies came to their attention in 2002. Inspired by the abandonment and fostering of the Biblical Moses, they opened their first home, in Roodepoort, in April 2003. In 2008 they expanded to admit toddlers and in 2012 they began admitting teenagers.
