Healing Hugs

Healing care for bodies and hearts

For $30 a month, you can provide medical care to a child living in poverty with a disability.

Give one of the poorest, most forgotten children in the world – like Esther – the medical care he or she needs to see, to walk, to hear, to thrive.

The Problem

200 Million

200 million children are living with poverty and disability.

8 in 10

In the poorest countries and communities, 8 out of every 10 children will die before their 5th birthday.

1 in 10

Of the children with disability who do survive, only 1 in 10 get the chance to go to school.

Too many children living in poverty with disability are seen as broken, cursed, somehow less than human. These children are the last to get medical care, the last to get education… so it’s little wonder they die at higher rates than other children in their communities.

The Solution

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

We believe all children are precious. All children deserve to hope and dream.

I couldn't imagine walking away from a child who could possibly live the rest of their life in pain – or struggling with a disability that could easily be fixed or managed. It's an exciting opportunity to be able to make a difference in a child's life.

Just went to the Danier sale to buy a jacket and realized I did not need another one and I am back to sponsor a child.
