Update: *Brent’s surgery was fully sponsored and went successfully.
“Hospital trip update:
*Brent (Truth Home) is scheduled for surgery on Monday to correct an intestinal prolapse issue. Please do keep him in prayer! *Brent is not fully sponsored; see above for more info.
*Valor (Anchor Home) saw a neurologist and had an EEG as a pre-op routine step, and the doctor said that his seizures are not controlled and that his medication dose must be incorrect. With some adjustments and seizure control, maybe his appetite and the tension in his jaw will improve and that in itself might help with his eating issues. He has a review in six weeks. [NEED COVERED] *Valor is not fully sponsored; see above for more info.
*Jason’s (Truth Home) hearing aids were found, but he had another hearing test since he hadn’t in had one in awhile, and they found that the aids are still his prescription. *Jason is not fully sponsored; see above for more info.”
An important part of SCH’s work is YOU! SCH relies on donations to keep running. Donation opportunities include monthly 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 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.
*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.
