Helping Hands 4 Wildlife is a Non-Profit Corporation, based in Badplaas, Mpumalanga, South Africa. We are dedicated to caring for the small, unnoticed, and forgotten wildlife that society overlooks. We specialize in aiding species often deemed insignificant and ignored by many, with a primary focus on Vervet Monkeys. These monkeys endure being orphaned as infants, subjected to abuse, exploited for cultural beliefs, and hunted for sport, all while unfairly labelled as vermin.

Despite their crucial role in ecosystems, Vervet Monkeys face numerous threats. Our mission is to change this narrative and provide them with the care, respect, and the protection they deserve.
