Welcome Home Ministries, Africa

About us

Welcome Home Ministries Africa (WHMA) is an orphanage licensed for 65 children from birth to six years old. Each child has a name, a story of loss and pain, also a hope and a dream. We love them all, and our mission is to see each child heal and grow to his or her fullest potential.

We are committed to love the hurting children of Uganda. The purpose of WHMA is to care for the children who are orphans, sick, dying, abused, abandoned or neglected; those who have no chance of survival without intervention.

WHMA is a bright and happy place nestled between the Nile River and Lake Victoria. It began in 1995 and is the first and largest babies’ home (birth to six years) in Jinja, Uganda. We are a team of around 50 Ugandan staff, caring for the many children who come to us in need. Our goal is to offer God’s love and care to the children in a safe environment. No westerners are paid and only 5% of funds from your donations cover our US overhead such as newsletter mailings.

Along with our orphanage, we also are actively involved in surrounding villages, hospitals, prisons and schools with our full-time Bible Team and our medical ministry to the village children.
