Victoria University Shares With Sanyu Babies Home

Students of Victoria University Kampala spent Saturday at Sanyu Babies Home where they paid a courtesy visit to share the little they have with the less fortunate children’s home located along Namirembe road.

The students under their umbrella association, Health Science Students Association In Victoria University, donated items like items pampers, baby wipes, porridge, milk, washing detergent, vaseline, soap, toilet paper and baby’s clothes.

They also engaged in activities like washing of baby’s clothes, painting with babies and interacted with the babies. The students were led by Guild President Mariah Peggy Nabunya and Miss Victoria University 2017 and 2018.

For 82 years now, Sanyu Babies Home, founded by Milnes Winfred Walker (RIP), a former midwife at Mengo Hospital, has devoted its resources to tirelessly 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.

Most, if not all, of the children under the care of Sanyu Babies Home have been abandoned by their mothers under unclear circumstances. They are mainly found on the roadside, retrieved from pit latrines, rubbish bins, ditches and any other place troubled parents find convenient to dump these innocent kids.
