Living Fountain Orphanage was established in November, 2007.
Our children are between 0 to 12 years old.
Our home can care for 45 children.
Our wish is to either reconcile or find suitable parents for our children early enough, but if the child’s individual situation makes adoption impossible, we will keep caring, educating, nurturing the child, until they are matured enough to lead an independent life.
All children that qualify for our care are placed in our home by the Ministry of Youth and Social Development.
The general public or the Police notify the Ministry of an abandoned, found, neglected or abused child.
We cater for all vulnerable, abused, neglected, and abandoned children.
Media stories and TV movies tend to present adopted children as alienated, unhappy or even criminals. The truth is that most adopted children grow up to be normal adults who blend in with everyone else in the society.
This home was founded by Lady Bethy Obieri and her family.
We do not get any support from the government. However, we are supported by well-meaning Nigerians.
Our home is not affiliated to any church or organization.
Our children attend school outside the home.
You can identify a child of your choice and then sponsor his or her education.
All our children reside here in our home.
There are various ways that you can support us: through school sponsorship, by meeting one of our needs, by volunteering and by donation.
The Ministry of Youths and Social Development prohibits taking of pictures of the children.
Feeding of the children by visitors with items donated by them is prohibited.
Most of our caregivers reside in our home but go on off in turns.
Visitors can visit between the hours of 7am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.
Sunday: 1pm to 6pm.
We are open from 7am – 6pm Monday – Saturday and from 1pm – 6pm on Sunday
