Advocating for Kids at SCH, Part V: Courage Home!

This post will consist of all the children who live at Courage Home in Hyderabad, where there are 3 foster homes: Courage Green, Courage Teal, and Courage Purple. All the children who live in Courage Purple (Nikki & Merissa, along with their 12 foster children and Nikki’s adopted daughter) are currently fully sponsored. This post will feature kids from Courage Green and Teal, respectively. Sponsorship helps SCH to be able to secure the proper medical care, as well as all the other essentials for living the happiest, healthiest life possible.
