Our partners at Sarah's Covenant Home in India provide amazing care to children with disabilities. These children are often abandoned because of social stigmas surrounding disability. When this happens, they are placed at government-run orphanages.

"Often times these orphanages are overrun, under-staffed and under-funded, making the child susceptible to neglect or abuse," SCH writes. "We work with the local government to bring children out of the government orphanages and into our care homes where they can receive the quality medical, emotional and spiritual care they deserve in a loving family-style setting."

The group is eagerly awaiting for Nicky to come back, after a string of children from the organization hospitalized with various infections.

SCH writes:

"We wanted to share some good news — after 8 days in the hospital battling an infection, Jeff is home!

Courage Home, the home of Jeff & the other young men (Nicky & Aaron) who have been hospitalized recently, rejoices in having their boy home.


It’s not easy having a child in the hospital. It’s not easy being admitted into the hospital. There is so much unknown, fear, & loneliness.


We are so thankful our guy is home - but we know we won’t be able to breathe fully until Nicky is home, too.


As we have mentioned previously Nicky is still in the hospital. He is currently stable but experiencing some unforeseen complications.


Nicky is ready to be home. We’re ready to have him home."

Jake's Network of Hope partners with SCH to provide special needs cloth diapers for its children.

With Thanksgiving just behind and as we head into the holiday season, gratitude is something we feel an abundance of: grateful for the impact we've made, the supporters who help us create this change and our partners who walk along with us.

Sarah's Covenant Homes is one of our longstanding partners, and they recently shared a number of posts offering great remidners and insights for Thankfulness, including this video from a staff member. He says:

"Thank you God for giving me this job in this home. I love to work with the kids. Thank you God that you have protected everyone during the Covid time. Also December 10th is my sister’s marriage and I am very thankful and very happy about it."

Sarah's Covenant Homes (SCH) is a community of family-style foster homes in India that cares for children and young adults with medical and special needs. SCH is home to over 150 previously abandoned children who have been rescued out of government orphanages that do not have the ability to adequately care for their needs.

Our supporters allow us to provide cloth diaper kits that support the needs of the children in these homes.

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! 

~ Stephanie
