An update on *Brent, *Valor, *Jason, and *Margaret, from Sarah’s Covenant Homes’ Facebook page:
Hospital trip update:
*Brent is scheduled for surgery on Monday to correct an intestinal prolapse issue. Please do keep him in prayer! He’s not sponsored, either [click here to] find out more about possibly becoming a sponsor.
*Valor 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. [fully sponsored]
*Jason’s 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. [Needs $225 more/month – sponsor here.]
*Margaret has an ENT appointment to see if an ear drum graft followed perhaps by ear tubes might help with her constant ear infections.” [fully sponsored]
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 $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.
