Today’s featured child of the day over at SCH’s blog is *Lydia. *Lydia has come so far from her early days at SCH. She’s happy, healthy, and has the widest smile that lights up a room. *Lydia is four years old and has cerebral palsy.
SCH saw past her diagnosis, and now *Lydia is getting the love and care she’s deserved from the start. SCH works wonders with love, food, shelter, and physical therapy, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg – SCH won’t turn *Lydia out when she is seen as ‘too old’ to be adopted. Do you see what love can do yet?
Birth Date: November 2007

Other Details About Me: I have Cerebral Palsy. I was near death when I came to SCH, but have since made wonderful progress in physical and emotional healing by the grace of God.
Spread the word, sponsor a child. Your world will be enriched and that much bigger if you share the story of the kids at SCH.
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!
