food- 4 kidz
Some of the hundreds of children in the slums we feed every Saturday.
Even a simple meal is better than no meal!! After their
meal they finish off with a banana (from the Bananaman
project'). Games and other activities follow to help them
develop their characters, friendships and team building, all
necessities to help them in their future lives.
WHeelchairs - give freedom
a wheelchair to a house bound senior citizen is a life
line for them, it gives them freedom from the 4 walls
which surrounds them, lets them have fresh air and
sunlight, both important for the health. Also they can
visit places they could only dream about - shops,
neighbours, church and many other places.
WHAT WE NEED- to
help the children
Dried and canned food to feed undernourished familes
and children in our feeding programs.
Clothes in good condition suitable for babies and young
children in care. Often the only clothes they have are what
they are wearing.
Diapers always needed for the babies in care.
Financial aid to buy fresh fruit for under nourished
SPONSORS- how you can
You can sponsor a child or adult so we can provide
them with food or clothes or medical aid and care over a
period of time. Let us know how you wish to sponsor
someone and we will make a program with you.
CLEFT LIP AND CLEFT PALATE
are one of the more common visual conditions
affecting babies. Without surgery at a very
early age the chances of having a happy youth
and social life are reduced. In later life their
self-esteem may wan and even result in
psychosocial problems due to their appearance. They
also face eating and speech difficulties as well
as dental problems. Early surgery can reduce
these to easily manageable levels for their future.
GIFT OF LIFE
providing major heart surgery for
children with Chronic Heart Disease in a joint
project with the Rotary Club of Siacity, India. We
assess the patient and have necessary medical tests
done which are then sent to India. If accepted in to
the program for the free surgery in India, we then
fly them and a parent to India for their surgery.
SIGHT AND SOUND
For children with hearing
problems, after their assessment we can usually
provide hearing aid(s) to open up their world of
sound, an obvious improvement for their learning
abilities and social life.
children benefit from various aids - special
computer programs for text to speech, Braille typing
machines and the special paper needed for the raised
impressions, sweeping canes and other items to
enhance their learning and every lives.
