The current home is outdated and is very limited in space. However, as the number of our protégés is steadily increasing, the construction of a new Sonrise Baby Home on another plot of land in Jinja was started in 2020. As soon as our babies can move into the new home, the current residence will serve as a quarantine station for new arrivals. These are not only often malnourished when they are admitted, but also suffer from serious infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.

In January we have a new addition to the Sonrise Baby Home. Gabi Suubi. Suubi means hope. She was abandoned in Kabubu. Sonrise is looking for her mother, but so far they had no success. Gabi is estimated to be 1 year old and severely malnourished. The first examination in the hospital showed that she also suffers from tuberculosis. We are glad that she is now in good hands with our dear Auntie Peace and hope very much that she will soon gain weight and survive the serious illness. Update March 03, 2019: Gabi has developed surprisingly well in this short time. She has grown from a malnourished, weak baby to a little bundle of joy. We are so happy that she is now so well. Thanks so much to Sonrise Baby Home for making another miracle.
