From his sponsorship page:
*Jeff is a huge fan of greeting those he knows and loves with a large, open-mouthed kiss, his arms outstretched for a hug. *Jeff is quick to let you know he enjoys being part of the forever-moving activity of the home where he lives, moving from room to room by rolling. He has a special bond with *Ian, who also lives in Courage Teal, neither able to fall asleep without hugs and giggles. *Jeff loves fiercely, is full of sass, and is an incredible joy.
Update 2017: *Jeff now lives in a family-style foster home, Truth Home. He is still thriving and smiley. He is described as curious and joyful! *Jeff has received a custom wheelchair that allows him to sit up and interact with his foster brothers, while also being correctly positioned.
Sorry for the delay, I worked really late tonight!
It’s day 10 of 105 in SCH’s sponsorship campaign, and today’s child is *Jeff!
*Jeff is 8 years old. He has cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability, but boy, does he look like a happy little guy! He loves to cuddle.
He’s come a long way since he came to SCH in 2009, and he can go so much further!
From *Jeff’s sponsorship page:
Birth Date: January 2004
Date to SCH: December 2009
Other Details about me: I have cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability. I am a bright joy in the room I share with other children. I love to be talked to and cuddled.
Many other children are still waiting for sponsorship, as well!
Spread the word, sponsor a child!
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 $25/month. Sponsorship usually costs between $300 and $500 per child, depending on complexity of needs and in which city they live (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 government 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!
