Cape Town – Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Tebow has revealed that a children’s home that she and her husband Tim Tebow are building is near completion.
The couple, through their Tim Bow Foundation embarked on a mission to build a children’s home in Johannesburg to accommodate babies that are abandoned in the city.
However they are not working alone – they are in partnership with Impact Africa.
According to TimesLIVE, Demi returned to South Africa to celebrate her grandmother’s 84th birthday.
She did, however, take advantage of the opportunity to inspect the children’s home that is nearly done.
Demi and her husband, who is a former NFL quarterback Tim, exchanged their vows last year in Franschhoek in the Western Cape.
They are currently living in the United States, Florida.
Demi took to her Instagram page to share the inspiration behind building the children’s home in Johannesburg and not in Florida where she lives.
“It is estimated that 3-4 babies are abandoned daily in the greater Johannesburg area. Upon learning this staggering statistic, the Tim Tebow Foundation was convicted to confront the issue and help to create a life-saving alternative to aid this massive crisis of baby abandonment in South Africa.

“On mission to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need, @timtebowfoundation joined @impactafrica to assist rescue operations to get to more babies and provide education and prevention to help desperate mothers in this difficult time.”
“Most recently, through my husband’s birthday fundraiser campaign, TTF began building a baby home situated in the North West suburbs of Johannesburg. My trip to South Africa was extra special because I got to visit with our partners and the nearly finished baby home, and I even got a few snuggles,” wrote Demi in an Instagram post.
