Season's Greetings from St Andrews Baby Unit

Santa Anne

The festive season is upon us once again! It's a time when we reflect on the year gone by and look forward to what's in store for the coming year.

At the St Andrews Baby Unit, we have been delighted to see children being adopted in to loving families this year. In total, four children have now been placed with local families since the adoption programme began last year. We've also seen a number of children graduate from the baby unit in to Kandara Children's Home.

The latest graduate was the little girl who is in the main image for this project on Global Giving. Little Wanjiku was in a sorry state when she came to the unit as she was malnourished and had been neglected. Over the years she has blossomed in to a beautiful girl, full of energy and laughter. The staff at the baby unit have nurtured her since she was about nine months old and she is now a confident young girl who goes to the Baby Class at School and is loved by the older girls at the home due to her comical nature.

Just in time for Christmas, the unit has a new arrival. Little Moses was just a few days old when he arrived at the home as his mother felt unable to care for him. He is doing well and has a bright future ahead of him going by the success stories we've seen so far.

There are now twelve little ones living at the St Andrews Baby Unit. Today, they will be heading out on an adventure with the other children from Kandara Children's Home. This is the annual Christmas Tour where they have a trip on a bus and some exposure to the outside world. Today will see them visiting "Mamba Village" in Nairobi where the toddlers will get the chance to go on a boat ride, play on a bouncing castle and see some wildlife. The mothers who take care of the babies will get some well deserved treats too as they do such a fantastic job raising the children under their care.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported the St Andrews Baby Unit throughout 2012. Your support has made it possible for the unit to provide care and shelter for many babies who had nowhere else to go. On behalf of the staff and infants at the unit, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Philanthropic New Year.
