Iganga Babies Home
Iganga Babies Home is a nonprofit, charitable, and faith-based agency that supports, cares for and gives hope to orphans, vulnerable and abandoned children ages one day to five years.
Iganga Babies Home depends on donations from friends, well-wishers and charitable organiza-tions. For the past two years they had been receiving support from USAID, but the funding was recently suspended after Uganda’s anti-gay law was introduced. The suspension of aid from USAID has greatly affected the Home and has caused them to have to limit the children they can take in. Those who suffer most from this suspension are some of the world’s most vulnerable children, and they need our help.
Godfrey Musabe, a Ugandan and longtime supporter of Uganda Farmers, Inc. visited the Home this past summer. He said, “The kids really want love, they want to hold your hand and be held.” After seeing the Home firsthand, Mr. Musabe recently made a trip to First Baptist Church of Milford to speak about the Babies Home, where they took up a collection under the guidance of the Missionary Group led by Sr. Carolyn Brangman and Pastor Calvin E. Robinson. Together they raised a substantial amount of money, all of which went to the Iganga Babies Home.
Thank you to Godfrey Musabe and First Baptist Church for the generous donation! We are pleased to be able to help Iganga Babies Home and the children in their care.

Thank you to Tara Galbo, Esq. for sponsoring our event at the Lion Sponsorship Level!
Attorney Tara Galbo, past President of the Milford Bar Association and humanitarian, has donated at the Lion Level for Running Water for Africa. This generous donation will bring water to many families in Nganiko, Uganda. The well will be located near a medical clinic with a maternity ward. The clean water is needed to assist in the delivery of countless babies.
