They also engaged in activities like washing of baby’s clothes, painting with babies and interacted with the babies. They toured the home and visited the babie’s nursery, kitchen, laundry room and sorting room for clothes. Below are pictures captured.
For 82 years now, Sanyu Babies Home, founded by Milnes Winfred Walker (RIP), a former midwife at Mengo Hospital, has devoted its resources to tirelessly make the lives of abandoned children worth living.
Most, if not all, of the children under the care of Sanyu Babies Home have been abandoned by their mothers under unclear circumstances. They are mainly found on the roadside, retrieved from pit latrines, rubbish bins, ditches and any other place troubled parents find convenient to dump these innocent kids.
