Anniversary

New baby

3-2-2019: Recently a baby was found in the neighbourhood of the orphanage. The child was newborn, wrapped in cloths and left behind by the mother. The mother turned out to be a schoolgirl. A girl in her situatin is often left alone by the family in Burkina Faso. The child is now staying in our center. We will try to get in touch with the mother of the child and find out if we can do something for her.

New Beds

8-31-2018: This summer we had a project to buy new baby cribs and children cots. The beds are specially made for us by a local constructor. The pictures below show how the cots look like. These beds are safe. The children cannot get their heads through the bars anymore. As a bonus, the beds are prepared to host the mosquito nets.
We purchase new bedding together with the beds. We would love to replace all the beds for the babies and the infants. The beds we were able to order are being produced right now and we want to thank everyone who helped us in achieving this result. It is still possible to contribute to this project.

Summerproject for new babycots

7-2-2018:

This summer we would like to collect funds to purchase new baby cots and beds for little toddlers.

The orphanage offers shelter for a relatively large amount of babies. The cots we now have are old, but they do their job. Yet there are a few problems. We’ve had a number of babies being very ‘movable’. They move in all directions in their beds. Then there’ve been several toddlers attempting to escape from their beds when they wake up.

The beds we have, however, are not very safe. The distance between the bars is large enough for some children to try and squeeze their heads through them, but then they get stuck. We have taken provisional measures to remedy this particular problem, but they have been to no avail up till now. This is why we decided that it would be better to switch to new and safer baby cots and toddler beds.

Two years ago we had an action to purchase new mattresses. The children are using them all the time, and they are still in an excellent condition. All the more reason to blatantly bring this new summer project to your attention. Should you want to contribute, please do so by stating ‘baby cots’ in the description of your gift.
