Youth Help Foundation
The Youth Help Foundation for abandoned babies is an independant company not supported by the government. Over the past few years the project has helped to tidy the grounds, providing football nets for the younger children to play. We've have provided baby clothing, baby seats, toys, baby milk and mosquito nets for the cots. The foundation is in need of financial support to continue helping these abandoned babies find a loving family. In 2018, the project installed a sensory room for the babies to explore. Read more here
