Child abuse, neglect and abandonment still remain a high level concern in sub-Saharan Africa. It continues to disproportionately affect babies in society, with newborn babies being abandoned daily in places like hospitals, roadsides, with strangers amongst many other places. With this problem on the increase, available government institutions that care and protect children are not able to cope with the plight of the abandoned and abused children.
It is with this in mind that the Baby life Rescue Centre Trust has established to be a registered charity. The main aim of the centre is to fill in and support other existing institutions that provide care and protection to abandoned babies hence relieving the problem, and also to support and provide a home, care and protection to the babies abandoned from birth till 3 years and to identify suitable parents to provide a home to the babies through adoption.
