Kenya is helping disabled and mentally handicapped children

St. Joseph the Worker Home was initiated in 1998 by the Sisters after witnessing that children with disabilities in the surrounding community were not receiving adequate care.

The Sisters work hard to give disabled and mentally handicapped children the rehabilitation, medication, vocational training, and care they need. For Ivan, this life-saving care brings forth remarkable opportunities to use his God-given talents and become closer to living an independent life.

Ten-year-old Ivan grew up in difficult living conditions that caused him to become malnourished and socially isolated from his community. The Sisters found him during a field visit and after a medical examination, he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Since joining St. Joseph the Worker Home, he partakes in speech and physical therapy, which strengthens his social skills.

He currently is in a pre-vocational class where he is gaining essential skills that will deeply richen his life in the years to come. His family commends the Sisters’ devotion and perseverance as he is improving greatly and sees that he is heading towards living a meaningful life.

Are you able to spare $400 for a wheelchair so a child with a physical disability can move around more freely? Or $140 that provides seeds so the children can enjoy nutritious produce and learn to grow vegetables?

The children also receiving the same care as Ivan are orphans who have epilepsy, autism, Down syndrome, or other conditions that require special treatment. While the Sisters work hard with the resources they do have they are in need of critical tools and supplies so they may continue to nurture these children.

YOU can help St. Joseph the Worker Home provide exceptional and crucial care by supporting the upgrading of their facilities, acquiring assistive devices including wheelchairs, and providing proper nutrition and medication for the children.
