Medical support and shelter for a child with disabilities
Of the 468 million children currently living in India, between 2 and 4 million are affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities. Though India adopted the Proclamation on the Full Participation and Equality of People with Disabilities in the Asian and Pacific Region in 1992, these children face social stigma and have relatively low access to basic medical services and educational opportunities. Many are abandoned or forced to beg for a living and children with disabilities are much more likely to suffer from abuse or violence.
Your donation will help the Sri Arunodayam Charitable Trust ensure that these children have access to appropriate medical care, physical therapy, and education, in addition to food, shelter, and the loving care they deserve.
