Update 2015: *Evan has been adopted by a family in America!
Time for the child of the day for SCH’s 105 in 105 sponsorship campaign! Meet adorable *Evan! *Evan is two years old and oh-so-cute! He came to SCH with tuberculosis, but with love and care, is now totally healthy. Don’t underestimate what love (and good medical care) can do!
It’s suspected that *Evan may have some form of dwarfism (I speculate achondroplasia, based on his facial features, but I’m not a medical professional). Foster mom Kourtney describes him as a playful, rambunctious, and funny child who is definitely ‘all boy’! I love that description. ^_^
He loved visiting the beach recently, playing in the sand and letting the waves chase him! He also loves to chase other children at SCH, like tiny, adorable, recently-featured *Aloe (adopted!)! Who knows where the future will take him?!
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 $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).
To sponsor any child who needs additional funding and still lives at SCH, use 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!
