Melodie Van Brakel

Melodie Van Brakel

Founder and CEO of The Cradle of Hope

Melodie is a selfless human being with a huge heart. What started as a place of refuge and support for abused women and children, has grown into The Cradle of Hope which is actively involved in 15 outreach programs.

From an emergency shelter to the House of Restoration where ladies are assisted to get back on their feet and believe in themselves again. A community feeding scheme where hundreds of homeless and destitute are fed each day, the list just goes on and on.

Melodie is a woman who has taken the worst that life can throw at her, and changed it into an opportunity to uplift those around her.
