Challenge

In this day and age many mothers are still dying in childbirth & some feel forced to abandon their newborn baby. The St. Andrews Baby Unit offers care & shelter for motherless babies & those who have been neglected or mistreated. The unit caters for up to15 babies and has its own kitchen, indoor open area and covered outdoor play area. Within this safe environment, babies from desperate situations are cared for in the hope that those with no extended family can be adopted in the local community.

Solution

Our baby unit takes care of all aspects of childcare - feeding, clothing, development, medical care - but without the conveniences of modern western society such as washing machines & disposable diapers. We want to give these babies brighter futures.

Long-Term Impact

This project gives orphaned & abandoned babies a better chance of having a good life. Some will hopefully be adopted by caring families, others restored to extended family when circumstances allow. Until then, they will be cared for in a safe place.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
