Here’s a list of orphanages in Lagos with addresses and contacts. Orphanage home is a residential institution, or group home, devoted to the care of orphans and other children who were separated from their biological families. Most children who live in orphanages are not orphans; four out of five children in orphanages have at least one living parent and most have some extended family. A few large international charities continue to fund orphanages, but most are still commonly founded by smaller charities and religious groups.
Donation of gifts and/or other essential items to them would go a long way in taking care of the kids and here is a list of orphanages in Lagos and their contacts if you’re willing to make a visit.
