Why Focus on Disability

Millions of children in the world are poor, lonely and dying, just because they have a disability. We are out to show all children that they’re worth medical care and education, health and opportunity.

150 million children have a disability. Only 1 in 10 children with a disability get a chance to go to school. In the poorest communities, children with disabilities are 4X more likely to die than others kids.

We are out to heal bodies and hearts – to heal families and communities. It’s about medical care and attitude change.
