Over the past seven years (!), we've provided thousands of diapers to our Diaper Drop partner Sarah's Covenant Homes in India. 
Have you ever wondered what is Sarah's Covenant Homes? Our friends at Sarah's Covenant Homes share the following:
.
At first glance, Sarah’s Covenant Homes is difficult to understand. We are comprised of many moving parts, bits and pieces--different from each other in so many ways--that come together to make one big, complex, messy, loving family. Sometimes we are reminded how organizationally complex SCH is--and often times, we aren’t able to depict the full picture of who we are.
.
We’ve decided to dedicate some time to sharing answers to questions that we are asked over and over again. Season to season, year after year. These questions are important and their answers are, too.
.
Questions like:
How many individuals do you care for?
How many homes do you have?
What is the work that you do?
What do you wish people understood about SCH?
Why do you cover the eyes of your kids in your pictures?
What are your financial needs and how do you meet them?
How can I be involved?
What does a day in the life look like?
How has the pandemic affected your daily operations?
.
To get things started, today we want to answer some of the most straightforward questions we oftentimes get.
Like “how many individuals do you care for?” And “how many homes do you have?”
.
Currently, we have over 130 individuals in our care between our two cities (Ongole and Hyderabad), six buildings that house smaller and very distinct family-style units. Currently, the youngest child in our care is one year old, and the oldest individual we care for came to us over 12 years ago and will soon be celebrating her 30th birthday!
The number of children and adults at SCH fluctuateS season to season based on external factors like adoptions, reunifications, and new transfers of children from other institutions into our care.
.
Simply put, our big, messy family is always growing and changing and reshaping and expanding and saying hello or see you later or welcome home. It’s beautiful and complex; it’s lovely and loving; it’s perfectly ours and we wouldn’t trade it for the world.
.

They’re all wearing colorful outfits.

It is a joy to introduce you to Daylan, one of the children who call our Diaper Drop Sarah's Covenant Homes home. Daylan just celebrated his 13th birthday!

Sarah's Covenant Homes shares this about Daylan:  "Daylan has a way about him that easily captivates every person he comes into contact with. Everyday for Daylan is marked with enthusiiasm for the big and small happenings, a contagious enthusiasm that is often marked with loud, joyful sounds. Although Daylan doesn't say many words, his communication is so loud and clear! He is a boy that knows what he wants! He has so much perseverance in learning new skills and working towards being independent in so many areas. This boy is joy and love and kindness and spunk and all that is wonderful and good."

Thank you for the joy you bring to Daylan, and the other children we are blessed to serve at Sarah's Covenant Homes!

It is a joy to introduce you to Muffy, one of the many children at our Diaper Drop Sarah's Covenant Homes. Her caregivers share this:

Muffy is an affectionate and adorable 1-year-old with big brown eyes and a beautiful smile. She has already stolen our hearts and garnered the attention of all at Joy Home- kids and caregivers alike. Muffy is such a content little girl. She has been adjusting well since her arrival last December. She came directly from the orphanage where being held by caregivers is a rarity. Our hearts rejoice for her as she is now part of a family style environment where she will feel loved, known, and cherished.

Thanks to your continued support, Muffy and the other children at Sarah's Covenant Homes have an ample supply of cloth diapers to keep them clean, dry and healthy. 

 

Thanks for helping Muffy!

We have incredibly exciting news to bring you: Our Diaper Drop Sarah's Covenant Homes has welcomed Danny into their care, joining the Anchor Navy Home family. Danny is five months old, and has spent most of his life in the hospital. Thanks to your continued support, Sarah's Covenant Homes has an ample supply of cloth diapers to keep Danny clean, dry, and comfortable. 

His caregivers are filled with joy to get to know him and celebrate his precious life! He's a super happy little guy who rarely cries and has big dimples when he smiles. He loves being swaddled. 

 "Being able to be a part of something like this everyday is such a gift. Being able to see God do some amazing transformations in so many babies, kids, and young adults never gets old. This never gets old" ~ Director of SCH

 Thanks for helping Danny and the other children we're blessed to serve.

It's a joy to introduce you to Alana at our Diaper Drop Sarah's Covenant Homes in India. Through your generosity, we're able to provide Sarah's Covenant Homes (SCH) with diapers for all ages of persons with special needs.  

Alana came into SCH's care in November of 2014 because the government orphanage she was living in could not properly take care of her specific needs. It took Alana about a week to warm up when she arrived at SCH. She was very fearful and shy. Slowly she began opening up and now she is often smiling and interacting with others. Alana has cerebral palsy and is nonverbal. She has no cognitive delay and can respond by nodding or using some hand movements. Alana is a bright, intelligent young lady who communicates much through her eyes and facial expressions.

Alana is doing really well in Jubilee Home. Alana is very smart and is enjoying our onsite special education classes. She communicates through gestures and pointing at what she wants and feeds herself when food is placed in her hand. She is working on fine motor skills with things like giant beads puzzles and blocks. She loves to play on the trampoline and enjoy hammocks and swings. She can go from lying down to sitting on her own, can go up and down stairs independently, and moves by scooting around.

Everyday her loving caregivers are blown away by this smart girl and her sweet presence, and consider themselves truly blessed to know her. She is full of life, love, and happiness!

Thanks for helping Alana and other children like her!
