Calabar Forum is pleased to adopt and support St Veronica’s Orphanage Home as one of its key charitable aims.
St Veronica’s Orphanage Home started in 1st January 2005 with 5 abandoned children, by Ms Veronica Duke who is a nurse by profession. As at April 2011, the home had 22 orphans in its care and is run by 8 staff.
The home is registered and regulated by the Cross River State Government and Akpabuyo Local Government, but is not supported by the government. The cost of running the home is from donations from well wishers and organisations.
According to Veronica “ I had the calling in the year 2000 to serve God by caring for the less priviledged of our society and St Veronica’s Orphanage came into existence in 2005”.
