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.
