THE FIRST ONE THOUSAND DAYS

That lovely VN smile!
That lovely VN smile!

The first three years of a child’s life are the most important in terms of physical and mental development and that is why Angel House Orphanage Foundation plays such a vital role in caring for children at this critical age. We provide these infants and toddlers with a nutritional diet supplemented by vitamins, as well as plenty of physical and mental stimulation. However, early intervention is the key to success and sometimes young children arrive with already stunted growth due to malnutrition and other medical problems due to neglect or poverty.

VN is one such child; she came to us in August of last year at eleven months old, along with her two older siblings. On admission she weighed only 6.5 kg (13 lbs) and 69 cm in length, too weak to support her own weight and her skin covered in rashes. She has continued to be a fragile little girl with frequent illness and skin problems that make her very irritable. VN only started walking at one year and five months and even now she is very unsteady on her feet.

With your continued support through Global Giving, Angel House can give children like VN a balanced diet and direct medical intervention when required, including physical therapy and mental stimulation through singing, story-books and other educational activities. Together we can make a big difference to their lives and give them the opportunity of a better life; when VN is happy her whole face lights up with a big smile!
