Mildred Dibden started taking in abandoned babies in 1936. As her baby numbers grew (32 in 1938) she moved to a holiday bungalow belonging to the Clifts on Cheung Chau (from 1938-40) , (just in picture middle left I think) before moving her family (49 babies) to open The Fanling Babies' Home in the New Territories in 1940. By the end of 1940 she had 61 children and a staff of 16, and at the start of the war in 1941 numbers had grown to 98 babies. Tragically 60 of the youngest babies were lost in the first 6 months of the war. They were buried in the grounds of the mansion.
