Therapy and food for children with Autism in Kenya
By Ruth Tenai - President and Founder
We are forever grateful; for the unconditional support that you, our donors through this GlobalGiving platform have given to us since we began this project in 2017. Each day we continue to reach out to vulnerable children with special needs and who come from homes that live in poverty and we provide them with free therapy services .services include occupational therapy to help them be able to adapt to the basics of life like tying their shoelaces, moving around by themselves and many other self-reliant activities. another service that we provide includes s[each therapy, education, and play therapy. These services when you go to a mainstream hospital they become very expensive for the children we serve who are primarily from the Nairobi slums of Mathare,kariobangi , Dandora, and huruma. We manage to reach out because you donate to us wholehearted and for that reason alone we say thank you and God bless you.
The coronavirus has presented a big challenge to us and the work that we do. by birth, the children with social needs have alow immunity system compared to those who are not of special needs. they are more susceptible to diseases such as COVID 19.we are doing our best to limit contact but still ensure the children get the therapy services which according to us are essential and very much required especially during these hard times.
in a special way, we appeal to you to donate more to this project so that we also rollout food care packages to the families who have children with special needs in Nairobi.
