House of Mercy & Daphne’s Bakery
After witnessing abuse in her family, she took in her niece and nephew and decided that no child should have to suffer as they did, and so Mama Daphne Oliphant started House of Mercy. Here she provides a haven for children who have nowhere else to go. But, from personal experience, Mama Daphne knows that the pain of abuse is more than just skin deep. There are scars that a safe place to sleep and a hot meal won’t heal. She provides counselling to all the children in her care and ensures that they have all the necessities that they need to go to school. She also heads an outreach programme that attends to those in need.
