What Are Special Needs in Poverty?

If you’re not living in poverty, something like asthma is a pretty non-threatening diagnosis. But for so many children living in poverty, basic healthcare doesn’t exist. Doctors are scarce. Even if you can get access to an inhaler, you can’t afford it. A child passes away every five seconds, and most of those deaths could be avoided with proper care.

Did you know that less than 2% of children in the world with special needs attend school?

Your sponsorship helps serve a child with special needs, giving them medical help they need to thrive. Without this help or financial support, children lose their lives to preventable diseases like malaria, asthma, or even malaria.

We ensure the protection and privacy of children’s personal information, so we do not list what their particular special need is. If a child requires special help within our program it means they have been diagnosed with a physical, chronic, or mental disability and require special medical attention. Sponsor a Super Hero with special needs today and show them they’re not alone.
