Why Do We Care?

Most of our children come from in informal settlements where clean water, electricity, sanitation and nutritious food are in short supply. We rehabilitate children who come from poverty stricken communities who have life threatening/limiting conditions. A team of health professionals work together with the parents/family/caregivers to facilitate the child’s healing process.
