Hope Orphanage

The children enjoyed the books we brought. Mama Omolehin said they will be help them with their reading. The very young children were given card books and there were some story books for the older children but they need a lot more!

Latest arrivals. These two new babies mean there are now 19 children in the orphanage. One is the baby of a young student who died giving birth. The other has a mother who has mental health problems. She had two other babies who died but this one has been rescued.

The children love seeing new people and want to sit on my lap.

This little boy was desperate to share his book with me.

The babies sleep on a mattress.

A well-wisher gave the orphanage this play equipment which they really love.

Mma Omolehin has a lot of land and would like to build a nursery, primary and secondary school for the children. She would also like them to live in groups of five with a carer so they would enjoy a family type atmosphere.

Baby Danielle just wanted a cuddle!
