Children making Valentine card
Dear supporters and friends,
We would like to give you updates of what we have been doing with your financial support over the last 3 months, in helping children with special needs to learn and connect.
Destiny Children and Family support project offer weekly tutoring and creative social activities to children with special needs, giving parents and carers 4 hours of respite services per week as a short break. However due to COVID-19 the project has been put on hold since it was about social activities we have put this project on hold until furner goverment guidlines. The project was running every Monday at Bromley URC, from 5-7pm and Wednesday’s at the Mounthfield Community Centre, Orpington from 5-7pm. These 4 hours of short break’s enable parents and carers to relax while their children are learning and doing creative activities to boost their social and life skills.
Over the winter season until 20th March, children and young people have been engaged in arts, crafts and educational games, reading story books, maths and creative social activities where children and young people are supported to engage in learning and create useful small objects in arts,and use their imagination to be creative. In the group they are able to socialise and form friendships .
The children were receiving vital support to boost their learning and social skills through this project and this will assist them in experiencing a brighter future. It is so wonderful to know that, some of the materials and support costs were been paid for from the contributions that you have all made to this project. Our work is only possible through the kind donations and support from our incredible donors like you.
