Children with Disabilities Fund International
Children With Disabilities Fund International is a non-profit Christian humanitarian, 501(c)(3) organization, committed to improving the lives of children with physical and intellectual disabilities in developing countries around the world.
In developing countries around the world, families of children with special needs often do not have the ability or resources to care for them at home. Many of these children are then placed in under-staffed, overcrowded and under-funded orphanages and other residential facilities. Children with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy and other disabilities are often isolated in these environments, receiving only minimal care and attention. There is a great need for special education services, physical, occupational and speech therapy, and vocational training. Without addressing those needs, many children with special needs in these countries cannot thrive or reach their full potential.
