Taking Care Of Disabled Children

Poverty-stricken communities often abandon or neglect children with special needs and the frail elderly who are dependent on the goodwill of others. Being ostracized by the community because of poverty, age and disability is not a rare occurrence. Many families disown or abuse their children because their disability is a burden on them or their medical status may be exposed and the family ridiculed because of it. Their conditions demand expert care, which low-income families cannot afford emotionally or financially.lumu Community Based organisation  provides medical and relational care regardless of religious affiliation to the most vulnerable elderly and children.
