Let's Go Fly A Kite!

By Sarah Pita | Development Director, NG USA

Dear friends,

Having a child with special needs creates challenges for Albanian families. Services are limited, and necessary treatments and therapies-- when they are available-- can be expensive. Parents and other family members are often the only caregivers, and that can be a full-time, unpaid job that lasts a lifetime.

In Pogradec, Nehemiah Gateway is one of the only organizations offering free services to people with disabilities or other special needs. Our connection to this community is highly customized to the needs of each household. We bring both physical therapy and aid parcels into the homes of people with mobility challenges, and sometimes our staff even do a little light cleaning and cook lunch. We run support groups for mothers, and provide special education services at our clinic.

And sometimes, we do things because they are fun. On a windy day in April, our clinical staff created a kite-flying field trip at a nearby park for some of the children with special needs in the program. It was a lot of fun-- and brought the  children together in the fresh air, allowing them to connect with one another as they developed their motor skills. 

Through this program, we provide food and medicine-- but we also work to build community and help people learn.

These needs are ongoing and you can help here.

With gratitude,

Sarah Pita
