The Founder, Milnes Winfred Walker- (RIP)
She was a mid wife at Mengo hospital and noticed the overwhelming number of children abandoned after birth within the hospital. She started collecting the babies and providing them with much needed care. As the number of babies increased, she eventually opened “Sanyu Babies Home”!
Sanyu Babies’ Home registration number is 0006 and TIN: 1000602423.
For 82 years now, the home has a team of devoted people working tirelessly to make the lives of abandoned children worth living. Sanyu Babies’ Home is administered by a Board of Governors as a voluntary organization under the auspices of Namirembe Diocese- Anglican Church of Uganda. The current Board is chaired by Rev. Prof. Samuel Luboga.
Caring for such young children is a round the clock task. The Sanyu staff includes an Administrator, on call doctor, 2 nurses, 22 domestic staff providing 24 hour care, 4 teachers, 1 accountant, 2 social workers, 3 cleaners, 2 grounds men, 3 security men, 2 craft shop attendants, 1 guest house manager, 1 poultry manager a driver and of course the board members below.
