WHAT IS FOREVER ANGELS?
The objective of Forever Angels UK is to promote and raise awareness of orphaned and abandoned children in Tanzania and to support initiatives to alleviate these problems.
We aim to promote general charitable purposes for the benefit of the community of Tanzania in order to address and alleviate social and economic disadvantage to impoverished and HIV positive families and orphaned or abandoned children.
Our First Project: Forever Angels Baby Home
Our first project is the building of a Baby Home in Mwanza on the shores of Lake Victoria in Tanzania. This Baby Home provides a stable, loving home for up to 50 orphaned and abandoned babies and infants from 0 to 5 years, who are severely disadvantaged. It is staffed by trained and dedicated Tanzanian carers and trainees and provides nutrition, love, health care, physical and emotional support until the child is either fostered, adopted or reunited with their family.
We believe that all children are born 'angels' - innocent, beautiful and able to 'fly'. Unfortunately we witness many babies in Tanzania with such poverty stricken and unfortunate backgrounds that the angel within them will never be seen. We want to give every child in our care a secure and loving beginning so that they are able to 'grow wings and fly'.

There are thousands of orphaned and abandoned children in Africa, often due to AIDS. In Tanzania, about
10% of the population carry the HIV virus. As a result of this, many babies and young children lose their
mothers whilst still nursing. Other parents are simply too sick or too poor to care for their children. Traditionally,
their extended family would help support these vulnerable children, but with the AIDS epidemic effectively stripping
away this support network, more and more of these babies are remaining in families that are simply unable to care for them
and so they often die from starvation or disease. Others are abandoned or left in Government hospitals to die alone.
FOREVER ANGELS BABY HOME MISSION
Forever Angels Baby Home is dedicated to looking after and giving love to young orphaned and abandoned
infants who have no one else to care for them.
