‘For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my father in heaven.’
Matthew eighteen ten
There are many abandoned or orphaned babies in Uganda due to extreme poverty, a lack of education and the HIV/AIDS crisis. Many of them fail to make it past their 4th birthday because of the much-needed care and medical attention required. Relatives struggle to meet the needs of young babies and children. Watoto provides care to destitute babies aged 0-2 years thus giving them the best possible start in life. When the babies are older they either graduate to a Watoto children’s village or are reunited with family members who can take care of them.
