Dorah is an angel in her own right. She has dedicated her life to help orphaned children in Roodepoort, South Africa (and the surrounding area). Dorah’s Ark is located in the old Roodepoort library. At any given time, we take care of +-35 children ranging from new born to teens. Again, this organization is run on firstly prayer and then the generosity of the community.
In January 2017, Mum Dorah was hospitalised and sadly passed away during the late hours of the night. Unbeknown to Kirsten and Anthea, it was announced at Mum Dorah's Funeral that her will had stipulated that Dorah's Ark was to be handed over to Wings of Inspiration to manage and facilitate its operations.
Dorah's Ark was then officially handed over Wings of Inspiration, and it is now known as the Wings of Inspiration Dorah's Ark Orphanage.

A Boys Dormitory and a Girls Dormitory ensured that the youth had their own living space - apart from the babies and toddlers.
