FREE THERAPY IN THE SLUMS FOR CHILDREN

We began this journey of making a difference in the year 2017 with you. our main concern and still is up to date is how children with special needs can access the medical therapies they need to make their lives better. We are talking about occupational therapy, physiotherapy, play therapy, speech therapy, and behavior therapy. these services we offer to children with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and other special needs conditions. We support the parents of children with special needs under our program by giving them counseling and from time to time foodstuffs.

we have been able to run this project because you have walked with us and supported us by giving donations to our project. we are having an increased number of children being referred to our therapy center in Mathare and we are only able to cater to a few of them. We would like you to help us more by referring your friends and family to continue giving to this project and in turn, we will be able to bring more parents and children into the project. Mathare, the area we serve is a big slum in Kenya which has lots of informal settlements, extremely high rates of unemployment and big poverty levels. the parents under our program cannot afford to take care of their children who have special needs conditions and therefore purely depend on the generosity of people like you through this project to give hope and better the condition of the children. with the donations we continue to receive, we will be able to buy more therapy equipment, hire more specialists and buy them food.

Will you continue this journey with us by making a donation?
