St. Andrews Baby Unit Update, July 2012

Changing Faces and a Challenge for Sustainability

Since our last update, the St Andrews Baby Unit has had another new arrival. A little boy, estimated to be about five months old was found in a house in the local area. It is thought that he had been on his own for two days after his mother ran off and left him. He is now under the care of Matron Lucy and her team.

Another group of children has graduated from the baby unit to the main children’s home at Kandara – Lucy and Teresia have joined Newton and Jacob and seem to be enjoying themselves in their new surroundings. They still pop back to the baby unit to visit the staff and their friends.

There has also been another child fostered since our last update.
