Sponsorship has the power to change the life of a child living with special needs in Kenya, and to provide critical support to families caring for children with disabilities.
For just $50 a month, you’ll help an extremely vulnerable child to receive medical attention (includes all regular care as well as any therapy or surgery), appropriate educational placement when possible, home based care and support to families, and advocacy in their community. Most importantly, you’ll be showing God’s love in a personal way to a special child.
Below, meet the children who are waiting to be sponsored by someone like you.
Ruth lives in rural Kenya and has cerebral palsy.
Ruth lives with both of her parents, who are peasant farmers, and her three siblings. Ruth was born normally, however at the age of one she contracted meningitis. After this, Ruth experienced a regression of development and was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Ruth loves to play with dolls. With the help of a sponsor, Ruth will continue to attend the St. Josephs Special School Malava, receive the advocacy and medical support she needs, and will have the opportunity to reach her full potential.
