MOO, through their Home Based Care program that started in 2003, identified over 500 children who have been orphaned and are vulnerable due to HIV/AIDS in Lehae and surrounding informal settlements.
Communities in these areas are poverty stricken with a high rate of unemployment due to HIV/AIDS infection and domestic violence.
MOO intervened by establishing HIV/ OVC Centre- called Khaya Centre.
The centre acts as a day care which provides these children, with basic needs and psycho-social support. Children are receiving services to meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs .

The core activities are focused on behavior change, care and supportvin the general public. MOOs main focus is to assist and develop Orphan and Vulnerable Children (OVC).
The Project is currently running from Khaya Centre Stand 2824 Primrose Drive Lehae South of Johannesburg.
