From humble beginnings but through commitment and perseverance of a group of people, the Place of Restoration Trust was born in 1992. Just as a little seed is planted in the ground by the farmer, there was great expectancy that it should grow and prosper. With a dream and a seed of R20.00 given to Basil and Monica Woodhouse as the founders, the organisation has become a BIG TREE and is still growing! Inspired by the scripture in James 1:27” Pure Religion in the eyes of the Lord is to care for the orphans and widows”, this still guides the organisation up to present times.
