The heart of Rejuv is to not only impact it`s immediate community and restore the foundations of your health but to also fund and finance need in the world. We at Rejuv believe we are blessed to be a blessing so we have our own orphanage and support three other international charities close to our hearts.
Rejuv’s Orphanage in India
Four years ago after having a few miscarriages trying for their fourth child Dirk & Simoné Laubscher, the founders of Rejuv, decided to lay that dream down and to embrace another one to fund an orphanage instead. This way they could impact 25 girls lives instead of just one. Rejuv’s girls home was founded by Mariamma Thampy and we partner with charity www.visionrescue.co.in to love, clothe, nourish and educate these girls so they grow up to be pillars of their communities, giving a hand up instead of just a hand out.
Charity Vision Rescue
Out of the 23 million individuals living in Mumbai, 54% live in slum communities. 70% of the children in these communities are malnourished and many of them are uneducated and in high-risk situations. With a little love and care, Vision Rescue seeks to empower these individuals and bring dignity to entire communities, so we at Rejuv partner with Vision Rescue in Mumbai. https://visionrescue.co.in/
Charity Born to be Beautiful
Fifteen years ago Simoné also met one of her now dearest friends, Sarah Glover, on a little mini bus crossing Uganda to meet her sponsored children in Africa. Sarah Glover went on to found her own charity called Born to be Beautiful which is a charity providing beauty therapy training and skills to victims of abject poverty and modern day slavery, restoring dignity and hope to lives devastated by exploitation. After each training course we give our students, a starter kit, uniform and certificate and help them find jobs or set up their own businesses. Thus changing their lives and their children’s futures for the mothers have financial independence allowing their children to stay in school, therefore impacting communities and the nation as a whole. http://www.borntobebeautiful.org/
Simone is also on the medical board for charity A21 and has been working with the founders Chris and Nick Caine for over 10 years since this charity began. Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. As the world’s fastest growing criminal industry, it affects every nation across the globe. Every thirty seconds, someone is forced into this type of bondage—modern slavery.
THE AVERAGE AGE OF TRAFFICKING VICTIMS IS 12 YEARS OLD. Woman and children are often kidnapped into the industry or sold into it by family under desperate circumstances. https://www.a21.org/
Rejuv as a company and The Laubscher’s as a family donate 10% of our profits to help support the powerful work of the charities above.
We also hold various fundraising events. For more information or if you would like to join us please email us at info[at]rejuv.co.uk
