Change a Child’s Life

Children's Mosaic

HSB’s Change a Child’s Life scheme is a way to contribute directly to the development of children whose families have sought the support of HSB.

There are over 200 children registered with HSB’s Change a Child’s Life programme, a number we aim to increase in the future by reaching out to more children living with disabilities and their families.

The children that HSB want to support live with varying degrees of mobility problems, hearing and sight impairments, speech difficulties, epilepsy, dermatological conditions, albinism and full or partial paralysis. Many of the children also suffer from malnutrition.

Each child has specific needs which include medical consultations, physiotherapy, medication, orthopaedic shoes, school fees and transport. Those with mobility problems require adapted transport such as tricycles or handibikes and wheelchairs, including Cerebral Palsy chairs.

 

All donations made via Change a Child’s Life go towards addressing these needs, and help to ensure that the children involved are able to lead more independent lives.
