The very first ever Hope Box Initiative in Gauteng was started by a mommy who has lost her precious son, and whose passion it is to encourage, love, support and give hope to women who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss.

Nanki lost her sweet baby boy Kaleb at 39 weeks gestation and that was what has inspired her to reach out and help parents who have, and are, suffering loss.  Hope Mommies, a non-profit Christian organization based in America, was a great support to her during her grieving process and that is what has inspired her to provide support for grieving parents in South Africa where she is based.


Donate or contribute to a hope box to help them reach more parents who have experienced a loss. Hope boxes can be donated in honor of a loved one, your baby or the recipient’s baby. That person’s or baby’s name will be inside the box and a note will be included so that the recipient know who gifted her with the hope box.

If you know of anyone who has recently experienced loss, please consider giving them a hope box. A hope box costs in excess of R500. A hope box can be couriered anywhere in South Africa.

If you feel like making a contribution towards the project, please contact Nanki or donate directly into the following bank account:

The Hope Box Initiative
The Angel Gown Initiative (TAGI)

The Angel Gown Initiative is proudly supported and endorsed by NCOT and the We Remember Our Babies initative.


Eric Elronde, CEO and founder of, The Angel Gown Initiative, is charitably repurposing old wedding dresses and formal gowns into beautiful Angel Gowns for infants who do not survive their journey into this world.

​At a time of utmost grief and sorrow, an Angel Gown is a small but deeply meaningful way to alleviate some of a family’s difficulties and great sadness.  The Angel Gown Initiative assists bereaved families with an important practical issue: how to provide a passed infant with the greatest dignity and grace.


All Angel Gowns are hand-made and are a free donation. Donations are made to hospitals where grieving families are being assisted.

Eric Elronde and The Angel Gown Initiative team are enormously dependent on the donations of old wedding gowns or formal dresses for the creation of Angel Gowns. The final gowns themselves are so small (some panels no larger than an A4 page) that even your off-cuts can be given great and lasting purpose.

The Angel Gown Initiative is a registered Non Profit Organisation
