The Cradle of Love is a children’s home in Tanzania that mainly looks after abandoned small children, children in need (insufficient or poor care) or infants whose mother died during or after giving birth. If a mother dies, the families are often unable to provide the essential food for the newborn. Often they do not have the financial means to take care of the child’s well-being. These children will temporarily find a new home at Cradle of Love Baby Home. The children are usually newborns when they come to Cradle and up to three years old when they leave and go back home.
At Cradle, the children get love, security, food, medical care, attention and the necessary affection that they deserve. When the children are able to eat independently and, above all, are no longer dependent on baby food, they come back to their family or to a relative who can then lovingly care for the child. If the child’s family is unknown, the child moves to another orphanage.
