The Abandoned Baby Center began as a response to a horrific problem: Every 10 minutes a baby is orphaned or abandoned in Kenya, their parents lost to epidemics, violence and poverty.
The Kenya Abandoned Babies and Children program opened in August 2001 to address this terrible situation. Many of the babies are brought to us barely alive. They come with nothing -- no names -- not even birthdays. But here at the program, they're given new life and real hope for a brighter future!
Staffed with medical and child-development professionals, our program is equipped to help meet the special needs of these babies, beginning with nourishing food, critical medical care and a loving home!
This innovative five-acre facility, on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, has a medical center, playrooms and care cottages to help babies recover, grow and thrive.
Our Abandoned Babies and Children program is much more than a children's home. It is a lifesaving haven.
