We need some help to support the ever growing community of special needs children in our care…

In July 2015, many of you know we opened our doors as a community for special needs children here in Tanzania… However as things developed we have since become the caregivers for special needs children who are here without their parents…

Children like Diana and Christina who can not walk, or talk. We found the two sisters starving sitting in the dirt and one suffering from severe pneumonia.
Both sisters are doing really well now, and live with us here in the childrens home, and Diana looks like she might even walk one day! You can see their story here ….

We also have Johnanna living with us… a young man who is lucky to be alive. Sadly Johanna was severely neglected, and when we found him he had been tied up in a shed with the animals, for a great many years… Johanna has spastic cerebral palsy, so he can’t do anything for himself, and never will… You can see Johanna’s story in the video below…

I think these two stories give an idea and insight into the troubles special needs children face here. Many are neglected, abandoned and those with parents who do love them, often suffer with terrible nutritional deficiencies as the parents can’t work to provide for them properly…

With the escalating medical costs, and care costs for staff to help with physio, and night time care, I have decided it is time to ask for some help…

Supporting a child in our care is averaging around £100 a month per child, with medical care, staff and the nutritional support they require too…

£100 a month is a lot for most… so I figured if 2 people shared £50, its getting better, and if 5 people supported a child, then its only £20 a month, and if 10 people could share with a child, it would only be £10 a month, and of 20 people could share then its only £5 a month each! Right down to 30 people sharing £3 a month each can help us to support a special needs child… and of course allow us to keep providing a home for any new arrivals, of which there are plenty on the horizon!

Help us support a special needs child here at the children’s home… for as little as £2 a month…
