Today, we were all a little sad to see big Glory leave Cradle of Love Baby Home. She has been our little mother to the younger children. Such a sweet and helpful girl. She has outgrown the baby home and is moving on to pre-school! Help for the Massai, is a wonderful organisation who will not only care for her but also pay for her schooling. Cradle’s triplets are also there and doing so well. We know this is a great opportunity for Glory and look forward to seeing her develop further. Her father is so pleased with her care [ Read More ]
Today, after four months at Cradle of Love Baby Home, Dalton was able to return home to be with his 20 year old aunt. Previously, his young aunt did not have a job and was therefore unable to care for him. She has now found work in a salon and is even able to pay a nanny to care for Dalton during the day while she is at work. It’s wonderful to see how much his aunt loves him and despite, her own challenges, is willing to to do all she can to take care of her nephew.
In 2014, we had 20 new children! 21 graduated from Cradle of Love with :- 12 returning home to extended family, 4 were adopted, 1 moved to another centre for older children and sadly 4 passed away due to severe illness in their early days of life. We currently still have 34 children with us. We just wanted to say a very big thank you to everyone who has helped financially this year. Without your support these children would not have a future. You have fed, clothed and help show love and kindness to these children. We also thank [ Read More ]
Happy New Year from Tanzania! The ‘Wobblers’ and ‘Toddlers’ enjoyed a small fireworks display at Cradle of Love Baby Home on New Years Eve. After the initial screams of fright, they absolutely loved it, as did the staff working and the boys, Ken and Brendon for setting them all off. What a lot of fun they had before bedtime
Thank-you ‘Nest Nappies’ for your donation of cloth nappies to the children at Cradle of Love Baby Home. On our last visit home to Australia, we stopped into the Paddington store in Australia and were loaded up with these very useful second-hand nappies. Pictured are only a few of them!
The father of Cradles twins, Frida and Elshadai is so please with the care provided for his children that he gave a goat as a gift of thanks. He brought his family to see the twins and share some food with us. What a loving father. We look forward to the day he can take his son and daughter home with him!
This year’s party consisted of lots of traditional Tanzanian foods, singing, music and dancing. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time and we are so thankful for your donations that made this special occasion possible. The leftover food was taken home by each staff member for their own families.
