The aim is too create a “haven” for disabled children, and to provide special therapy for them.
The project focuses on rehabilitation, and also provides medical services for the children as well as a house to live in. All of them are either orphans or their parents can’t take care of them, so they bring them to Camp Hope during the day.
The children are separated into 5 groups depending on their skills. With the younger children, volunteers will change diapers, bring them to bed, help them eat, etc. With older children, volunteers are helping with arts and crafts and play games to practice reading and writing. Depending on the preference, the volunteer can also help during therapy.
