Description: In February 2016, we closed Malaika Babies' Home and opened an 8-bed emergency reception centre for abandoned children. While here, they receive emergency care in a homely setting for a few weeks as arrangements are made for their foster placements, in order not to expose them to the dangers of prolonged institutional care. Welcome to Malaika Family Centre.

Description: Five years ago, Child's i Foundation set up a 25-bed unit to provide care for abandoned babies. Last year we piloted a emergency foster care pilot to place children into foster care instead of residential care. The pilot was so successful we are reducing our unit to 8 beds. Child's i Foundation organised an open day to explain the pilot and encourage other organisations to do foster care instead of running institutions.
