PROJECT FOCUS: PARTNERS NEEDED
One of God’s great blessings to Orphan Voice has been the opportunity to work with rural special needs children and their families. It began in 2010, when Orphan Voice partnered with the Peoples’ Committee of Phu Ninh District and re-opened the Phu Ninh Therapy Center. That Center had formerly been supported by a group of Vietnam veterans, but it had closed for lack of funding.
Since re-opening that Center, hundreds of children have been helped. Children who could not walk have learned to walk. Children who could not feed themselves have gained that skill.
But also throughout those years, neighboring districts asked us for the same help. There were also special needs children and families in their areas who receiving no help who needed it. As a result, children with cerebral palsy and other developmental delays languished without care.
Hope Therapy Center is Orphan Voice’s second outreach to help special needs children in rural Quang Nam Province. Hope serves a different group of families than our first outreach (which continues), so there is no overlap. Common issues with these children are cerebral palsy and other development delays.
To head Hope Therapy Center, Caroline Mrowiec, a licensed occupational therapist from the United States, has moved to Vietnam. She is on the ground and excited about helping children and families.
Hope Therapy Center is not fully funded, although we are moving forward in faith and are receiving children. Would you like to partner with us in this much needed effort?
