Beginning Life with Hope

by Sally Test Paediatric Centre

Summary

An unexpected joy and pain of work at the Sally Test Paediatric Centre are the many abandoned children brought to the hospital by Good Samaritans and police-from maize fields, pit latrines, roadsides, and more. Often the only disease affecting the family was poverty and loss of hope. Our job is to restore trust into these little lives as we love and stimulate them in developmentally appropriate ways in order to fulfill the promise they hold.

Challenge

Care of infants and toddlers is both rewarding and expensive. Averaging eight or more children at all times, over half our donated funds are used to assure our abandoned children are comfortable, well fed, clean, and lovingly stimulated as they await placement in children's homes or with families.

Solution

Receiving assistance to purchase daily necessities for our children such as soap,diapers,infant formula milk, fresh milk,fruits and cereal will better allow us to focus on expanding the loving care and programming given to all children hospitalized at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

Long-Term Impact

Your donation has the potential to change the fate of children tossed aside by society as Sally Test team works with hospital social workers and the district children's office to assure to find good and loving foster care. With your help we can move closer to providing around-the-clock care for these beautiful children.
