Over the past year, through our Covid-19 Response Program, Kupenda’s field staff and local leader child advocates have identified over 300 new children with disabilities in Kilifi, Kenya.
More than 65% of these children were in need of care for illness, malnutrition, abuse, or neglect, which we’ve provided through remote counseling and service referrals (using our new Child Case Management mobile application) and by delivering food and medications to children most at risk.
We are now working to secure school placements and consistent health care services for these children. Can you help us by signing up to sponsor one of these children for just $30 / month?
You can learn more about these children at here and read our sponsorship Frequently Asked Questions here.
