Amani Baby Cottage is located in Jinja, Uganda. It was established in 2003 to provide care for orphaned or abandoned children.
Their website states:
“We can house up to 60 children ages birth to 5 years. Children are referred to us through the local authorities and the social welfare system. Many are orphaned when their parents die due to AIDS, birth complications or other factors. Some are abandoned in the hospital after birth. Others are found abandoned at taxi stops, in latrines, or on the street.
Our goal is that each one of them will find a place with a loving Christian family. To date, a total of 313 children have been cared for in our home. 80 of these have been reunited with their parents or extended family members, 123 have been fostered into new families, and 25 have been transferred to other ministry placements. We do not refuse children in fragile health, thus 23 children have died while in our care. (stats of Apr 2013).
Amani Baby Cottage employs about forty Ugandan workers to care for our children, and also enjoys the assistance of a number of volunteers from around the world.
We operate under the covering of Total Family Outreach, a non-profit US corporation. Amani Baby Cottage operates by faith in a loving, heavenly Father who has promised to take up the cause of the orphan.”
