Welcome to the Julius and Dora Children's Centre, North West Kenya
Our mission is to provide a loving home for abandoned babies. Most of them have been the victims of attempted infanticide, many having been ‘thrown away’ outside and left to die.
We currently have 25 children. Most of the children have been with us since infancy and are now between the ages of 1 month and eleven years. From age 3 the children attend a local nursery or primary school.
Our house parents provide a flourishing environment for the children.
Who We Are
Floice Adoyo is the co-ordinator and ‘driving force’ behind the running of the Children’s Centre, whose parents bequethed the land on which the Centre has been built.
The Julius and Dora Children’s Centre rescues and cares for these abandoned babies, providing a loving home for abandoned babies in North Western Kenya.
How You Can Help
Donate books, art materials, educational materials, medicine, and other material or financial assistance.
Hardly any of these children would be alive without the help of the J&D Centre.
There is no other charity or government agency in this Western Province of Kenya which is willing to take on the demanding work of caring long-term for abandoned babies. This is a huge problem as “...the province recorded over 39,000 cases of children abandoned in the last two years... [Many of these are just babies] They are either strangled or abandoned in the bush soon after being born to save the family from perceived curses...” (Mr Isaac Ochanga –Western Provincial Children’s Officer).
