Chief (Mrs.) Rebecca Olubukola Solanke was for many years a Health Visitor at the University College Hospital, Ibadan (UCH). As part of her duties, she regularly followed up children born at the U.C.H. especially whose mothers died at childbirth. In the course of her work, she noted that motherless babies discharged home to relatives had very slim chance of surviving. She observed that such children died partly due to poverty but more importantly ignorance in the care of babies deprived of normal maternal care and affection. Thus, the need for a home for these newly born motherless babies became more apparent to her. In 1960, she took into her care, in her own home, the first motherless baby.

By 1961, Mrs. Solanke had succeeded in getting Mrs. Ogunfowora and some of her Nigerian colleagues at the U.C.H interested in her pet project which from then on was keenly supported by them, both morally and financially.

With the generous support of His Excellency Brigadier R.A Adebayo, the then Military Governor of the old Western State of Nigeria and the people of Ibadan, a piece of Land was donated to the Home in the present site in 1966; thus the foundation stone of a new building was laid on Saturday, the 29th July, 1967 by Brigadier R.A Adebayo who two years later officially declared opened the completed building of the home on 1st March, 1969.
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND The Motherless babies are admitted under the custodial care of the home for a period of about two years by which time the children are excepted to be able to eat the local food, are less dependent on adults for feeding and can communicate verbally in the local language. Thereafter, they are returned to their fathers. There are about 23 babies at any given time although the Home can accommodate more. The Home Encourages immediate adoption of the abandoned children and for those not abandoned, they are returned to their relatives after a period of two years.

If for any reason, the relations are unable to provide the much needed physical and emotional needs especially when relatives abandon such children, they are fostered by responsible individuals in the society or are taken over by the SOS village.

The Home tries to avoid this option as much as possible by encouraging relatives to pay regular visits to their wards.
