Help children and
babies be in families
and give hope
Help us create a society where all orphaned, vulnerable, and abandoned babies get a chance to grow up in loving, healthy families
why support us?
We've helped 500+ babies & young children be able to grow and thrive in families
To be a source of hope and inspiration to the needy children in the society and be a model for best practices in protecting orphans and vulnerable children.
To give hope to the abandoned and vulnerable children by ensuring that they are placed in safe and loving families.
What we do
Children should be families and kinship care, not orphanages. That's why we're committed to tracing, reuniting, and strengthening families.
How we care for children
Amukura Orphanage Home is a faith-based organization that supports abandoned, HIV/aids, neglected, and orphaned babies from one day old until five years old and reintegrate them back into families mainly through alternative family care like foster care and adoption because every child deserves to be loved, safe, and have dignity.
Today, we're supporting 24 babies currently under our care in our home and support 15 children in foster care and 9 reunited biological families in family-based care. Our goal is to help these children still in our home and others be safe and loving families through kinship care, family reunification, foster care, and adoption.
Amukura Orphanage Home was started in 1952 to care for newborn babies whose mothers had died, due to the high maternal death rate which was 50% of all births. Most of the children we care for now have been abandoned, orphaned, HIV/Aids affected or infected, or are homeless and living on the street.
Throughout our 70+ years of operation, we've provided more than 500 babies and young children with care, protection, immunization, medication, clean water/sanitation, legal support, tracing their families, and resettlement into kinship care or facilitation of foster parents and adoption into safe and loving families.
WHAT WE DO
Changing the way we care
Children should be families and kinship care, not orphanages. Children have the best chance to thrive when they grow up in a family.
That's why we're committed to strengthening families, and we shifting towards a family-based care model.
