Children with disabilities in Kenya are often shunned by society and even their own parents. Some of these children have been abandoned, abused, hidden, or simply ignored because of their disabilities. Others are sent to the streets to beg.
According to current estimates, there are still 400-500 children in the districts Kupenda supports who cannot be assisted due to limited staff and resources. This is in addition to the estimated 500 or more children that have yet to be discovered.
For less than a dollar a day, you can help make a tremendous difference for children with a variety of disabilities, regardless of their religious affiliation, so that they can receive the care they need. To sponsor a child, please visit our Sponsor A Child page.
