Merry Christmas from SBH!
As we all celebrate the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we recall that this festive season is traditionally marked with prayers; thanks-giving; carol songs; feasting; and family reunion.
However we should remember that in our midst, is a group of unfortunate, orphaned, abandoned, babies and toddlers: rescued from garbage heaps, pit-latrines, streets and bushes, hospitals, churches, markets, not to mention those referred when a mother has died or is mentally ill: often referred by probation and social welfare officers, or, the police (children who come when they are frightened, hungry, sick and malnourished) to join Orphanage homes.
We at Sanyu Babies Home (SBH) praise GOD for the lives of the children in our care brought to us to join the Sanyu family. Without all yours and our intervention, such vulnerable babies would have no exposure to any of Christmas festivities listed above: such as family, feasting, singing, presents, and parental love and care. Through GOD’s providence, not less than 45 babies on average (at a time) have remained in our care; and very many, over 70%, of referred babies have left SBH to be reunited with their families; taken over by foster parents; or adopted.
We wish to renew our gratitude to all people of good-will that have come out to the rescue of SBH in one way or another. Special mention would be made of our dear friends, donors, partners, volunteers, foster, adoptive parents, and our mother Diocese of Namirembe.
We wish all of you kind people GOD’s blessings; a happy Christmas; and a prosperous 2017.
