105 in 105, Day 9: Ezra!


Update 2017: *Ezra lives at Faith Home Orange with 6 foster brothers. He loves to play in the water, go on fun outings, and be held.  He is a generally happy kid who brings so much joy to the people who take the time to know him. *Ezra uses a custom wheelchair to get around, and it allows him to be supported in a position that is good for his posture and will help him to sit taller, so he can interact with all his brothers even more! He needs $275/month to be fully sponsored. Sign up here.

Update 2015: *Ezra now lives in a foster home with other boys close to his age who have similar needs.

It’s day 9 of SCH’s 105 in 105 sponsorship campaign. Today’s featured child is *Ezra!

What a joyous laugh *Ezra has! He came to SCH less than a year ago (in 2011) and has come very far! He is described as having a silly personality and loves to be tickled. He has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and intellectual delay, but that doesn’t stop him from sitting up with support and giggling all the while!

*Ezra is 5 years old. Let’s help him reach his full potential! If you have read any previous posts on my blog, you have met kids who live in the same place as *Ezra, and with cerebral palsy, learning to walk! Previously featured *Justin has the same needs as *Ezra, and look how far he has come! This is what *Ezra is capable of having with the best love and care possible, and both boys are capable of so much more, I’m sure. He is so young.

*Ezra needs you, and he deserves the same love and care as every other child out there. Be part of his story by sponsoring him or spreading the word so that he may find someone (or multiple someones) who is able to sponsor him.

From *Ezra’s sponsorship page:

Name:  Ezra

Age: 5

Birth Date: December 2006

Date to SCH: December 2009

Other Details About Me: I have an Intellectual Disability, Cerebral palsy and Epilepsy. I have an exuberant personality and love to be tickled.

Spread the word, sponsor a child!  God (or whichever higher power is out there) is moving mountains for the children of SCH.  Let’s help!

An important part of SCH’s work is YOU! SCH relies on donations to keep running. Donation opportunities include child sponsors at any cost per month, from as low as $10/month. Sponsorship usually costs between $300 and $500 per child, depending on complexity of needs and which city they live in (Ongole or Hyderabad).

You can sponsor any child who needs additional funding at SCH by using the resources found here. Use these resources to get involved in other ways, such as becoming an advocate or volunteering. You can also become a medical sponsor (ideal for large groups or organizations who wish to support SCH) and donate toward monthly emergency medical expenses; or an educational sponsor and donate toward a specific on-site school. Learn about other ways to give charitably to SCH here, and check back often for additional opportunities.

*A note about names: SCH uses online nicknames for the children in order to protect their identity, per Indian governmental guidelines which state that children in care may not have identifying photos of them on the internet, as well as no identifying information such as birth name, place of origin, etc.

You can also send gifts via Amazon India, make a one-time, general donation, pray if that is your calling, or volunteer at home or in India yourself by using these resources!
