One Life Impacted: Addie’s Story
By Stephanie Bowers – Project Leader
Addie is just one of the thousands of lives impacted by your support. Addie was abandoned, and then rescued, by one of our ministry partners, Sarah’s Covenant Homes-India. There are about 200 special needs orphans in the care of Sarah’s Covenant Homes. Approximately 170 of these children need cloth diapers and will be in diapers for a good portioin, if not their entire life.
Addie is 2, and has cerebral palsy. She can sit all by herself and is learning to crawl. She attends SCH’s on-site preschool, and she especially loves sensory play, like playing in shaving cream! She lives in a family style environment, which is how Sarah’s Covenant Homes cares for and raises the children.
The use of cloth diapers allows Sarah’s Covenant Homes to save significant amounts of money, which therefore allows them to more adequately meet the children’s basic needs: food, clothing, shelter, medical care.
