105 in 105, day 99: *Jasper!

PD: A girl stands against a white wall, wearing a traditional Indian sari that is hot pink, blue, & gold w/ paisley accents & sparkly glitter. Her hands are at her sides, wearing blue bangles.

Update 2018:

 *Jasper uses a wheelchair to get around and to keep him properly positioned, so he can sit up and interact with the world around him! This handsome guy still needs $300/month to be fully sponsored. You can sign up to sponsor him here.

Update 2017:

*Jasper now lives at Truth Home. He has been diagnosed with kyphosis of his back, and has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. He is very observant, and loves to be outside! He also enjoys being held. His sponsorship page highlights the following story: *Jasper loves the sound of car and auto (Indian taxi) horns, and will laugh and kick his legs anytime he hears the noise.

Original post:

Today is *Jasper‘s day!

He’s 13 and has a simply BEAUTIFUL grin! Very handsome. He was in the second group of children to arrive at SCH way back in 2009, and has made great progress!

You see, when *Jasper arrived at SCH, he seemed to be on death’s doorstep. He was severely malnourished to the point of skin and bones, and had a manageable chronic illness that was not in-check. *Jasper has cerebral palsy, but is now negative for the chronic illness. That’s great news!

What *Jasper also has is a sense of humor and a gentle heart! Those things by far outweigh the negatives he’s had to overcome in his life. *Jasper is really great friends with *Josh (they’re about the same age, too!) and loves to be in the company of the other boys in his foster home as well. He has a sweet personality and loves to be tickled, which always gets a good Cheshire cat grin out of him!

Sponsorship covers his nutritional needs, medical care, ayah, nurse, or caregiver, and a safe place to grow and thrive, plus so much more!

*Jasper has aged out of international adoption, but you can still be a part of his life by pledging a monthly donation to his sponsorship fund. Let’s keep this boy giggling and smiling, and ensure that he has the chance at the most comfortable life that SCH can give to him.

*Jasper is loved and so very special! Become a part of his village.

From his sponsorship page:

Name:  Jasper

Date to SCH: February 2009

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 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 become 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. You can 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.

*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.

PD: the SCH logo – black text reads ‘sch’; red text below reads ‘sarah’s covenant homes’; heart-shaped flowers bloom from the name.
