Therapy and food for children with autism in kenya

Dear Donor,

 

I hope this finds you well. For the past few months in Kenya, we have been experiencing hard times especially in light of the covid 19 pandemic. Were it not for the support that you give regularly and randomly to us through this GlobalGiving platform, we would be lost.

The help and support, thoughts, and prayers that you have sent our way through from January this year 2021 have been able to keep us afloat to date. We sincerely thank you for that.

Through your unwavering support from January to date, we have been able to pay the rent of the premises, feed our volunteers, and run the therapy and food program.

over the past few months, we have witnessed a 50 % increase in the number of children with disabilities that we attend to at our therapy center in Mathare slums in Nairobi  Kenya. At this therapy center, we offer free occupational therapy, speech therapy, and play therapy for children with disabilities coming from poor backgrounds, these services we offer for free, and the cost of each therapy session is directly covered by you our esteemed donor, and friend.

Currently, dear donor, our facilities are strained due to this increase and once again we turn to you for help and assistance in managing our numbers which have now grown to over 100 active children with disabilities coming to the therapy center every weekend. This means that there is even a bigger number of over 300 that we have impacted already and there are over 150 children on our waiting lists who we cannot admit for the free therapy services due to strained resources.

Find it in your heart to become a regular donor to this project and directly sponsor a child's therapy until they are completely rehabilitated and independent. We will share with you the journeys and milestones of each child you directly choose to adapt and you will be responsible for their progress and needs at the therapy center.

Regards,

Ruth Tenai

Founder and President 

Step UP 4 Autism Kenya.
