To Children Who Are Physically Challenged:
Social services in the Vietnamese countryside are not developed enough to provide therapy centers for special needs children. And poor families can’t travel to large cities where therapy services are available. As a result, cerebral palsy children are often left alone during the day as both parents work. These children normally lie in bed all day, with limbs increasingly drawing up and growing stiff. That’s just the way life is.
Orphan Voice partners have changed all that for 75 families in rural Phu Ninh District. Children who couldn’t walk now walk! Dozens others have made huge developmental gains, such as learning to feed themselves. Imagine yourself a mom whose child has never eaten unless you fed her – and then she learns to feed herself – imagine your joy!
Therapists continue work with these 75 families and we’re reaching out to 100 other special needs children who don’t have therapy or hope!
