PROVIDE CUSTOM EQUIPMENT FOR SPECIAL NEEDS STUDENTS IN NEED!

Heshima is a place of refuge and hope for poverty stricken families touched by disabilities. These families not only deal with the pressure of extreme poverty (open sewage in the streets, no clean water or indoor plumbing) but also cope with the stigma of having a disabled child. Although this attitude seems antiquated, it is a cultural reality in the slums of Nairobi. Heshima helps ease the pain by providing therapy, special education and medical intervention for these families.

Heshima relies on local carpenters to make needed therapy equipment; custom bikes, custom wheelchairs, custom walkers and crutches. We need #Lifters to help provide this therapy equipment for the 50 children at Heshima.

Providing dignity for kids with disabilities.
