Therapy and food for children with autism in kenya
By Ruth Tenai - President
Your contributions to this project continue to make a difference in the lives of children with autism in Kenya and specifically in Mathare slums in Nairobi. This is an area where the majority of the population lives below two dollars a day and continues to suffer due to systems put up by society that disenfranchise many of them.
Having a kid with special needs comes with many other unforeseen expenses like money spent on daycare, special diet, and even travel. Therefore again to cater for therapy which is very essential becomes a challenge to most of the parents.
over the past three months, our therapy center which gives free therapy to children with special needs has continued to receive more clients who have now enrolled in the program. we are barely keeping afloat due to the budgetary constraints despite doing a good job.
our major expenses are in rent, food and therapy equipment, and reimbursement for our very able volunteer doctors and therapist. To continue offering this service for free we need you to hold our hands even tighter.
Thank you and May God bless you forever for your continued kindness.
