Weeping may stay for the night but joy comes in the morning
Like thousands of other families in the Philippines, Jessa Clavero and her husband struggled immensely when baby Theo was born with Cerebral Palsy. However, they didn't sit back and complain, they bravely persevered and to this day continue to try to get the best for Theo.
However, they didn't stop there. That resilience and passion has since given birth to a vision to help the poorest in their country to access education and support - support for both parents and their children with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. They started the Cerebral Palsy & Epilepsy Family Awareness Support Group over four years ago.
With tremendous burdens often come enormous gifts. The trick is to identify the gifts, and glory in them.”-Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein
To date this support group has organised dozens of seminars and training days that offer hope and help to so many and begin to identify the 'gifts and the glory'.
Jessa contacted me on Facebook after she saw our Shekinah page www.shekinahschool.org
At times they struggle to raise support, so I made a promise to help pay for the venue of the World Cerebral Palsy Day they are planning for next month ... October 7th ... AND to help pay for some of the families who otherwise couldn't afford to attend.
Will you help me help them?
