St. Josephine Bakhita’s Children’s Home (Formerly known as Amukura Orphanage)
Since it’s inception in 2014, one of the main priorities of the Little Sisters’ Angel Fund has been to financially support the Amukura Orphanage, in Amukura Kenya. This orphanage houses 28 children, who were abandoned by families who could not care for them. The majority of the children are under age 5.
The Amukura Orphanage was opened in 1952, and the building has fallen into disrepair due to lack of funding for repairs and improvements. We are currently in the final phases of constructing a brand new orphanage building, funded entirely by our generous donors! This new orphanage will house more children and will provide a much better quality of life for all. Special features of this new building include a dedicated health room, study area, activity room, guest room, and chapel, as well as the conveniences we take for granted, such as working toilets, a modern kitchen, windows to keep out mosquitoes and cold, and more.
The new orphanage building will also have a new name – St. Josephine Bakhita’s Children’s Home.
