Story

With 700 children to look after,
the Noel Orphanage in Nyundo had few resources to care for their disabled
children and youth.  Disability is still viewed as a shameful stigma in
much of Rwanda - these young vulnerable people were considered the lowest priority.

Years of mistreatment & malnutrition has further traumatised them - some
even died through
neglect.           
                                                                                                               
During the last 2 years, donors of the Point Foundation funded 
better care for the Noel persons with disabilities at the orphanage,
but when the government closed the orphanage there was no solution provided for
the disabled. Forgotten & homeless, they were in danger of being abandoned
yet again.   

In order to protect the ex-Noel persons with disabilities and
reinstate them back into their community with the care they deserve the Point
Foundation funding is providing the solution, whilst we continue to advocate
government ministries to take true responsibility of their marginalised
citizens.

£100 will cover all medical costs
for an entire house for a whole month.  £30 will cover the costs for a
full time carer for a whole week. Please give what you can as every penny realy
makes the difference to these orphans
