Care is provided to destitute babies aged 0-2 years, giving them the best possible start in life. When they are older and physically well enough, they either graduate to a Watoto children's village or are reunited with existing relatives.
The babies come to Watoto from a number of different referral sources such as hospitals, local authorities, child protection units, good Samaritans or other homes and care organisations.
It is common for them to be premature, abused and with serious medical complications.
