Helping children living with disability

MMN are supporting 3 projects in Africa who support children living with disability. Many of them have no access to healthcare, live in poverty and have little hope. Our partners seek to support these children and their families so that they can flourish and be valued members of their communities.

Situation

Children who live with a disability in Africa often lack the opportunity to access the healthcare and support they need which to help them, which in turn means they are isolated and miss out on education and do not learn simple life skills. The end result is that they feel worthless and their families do not know what to do to help them and so keep them hidden away. This has been made worse with the challenges of COVID-19 during the last year or so.

Solution

Our 3 partners (Special Children’s Trust in Uganda, Helping Hands in Mozambique and Wukwashi wa Nzambi in Zambia, are seeking to give value to these children for who they are and to make a tangible difference to their lives by providing therapy and healthcare, mobility aids, access to education and providing groups for them and their families where they can receive support and encouragement.
