Life dealt Patricia* the first blow when she was born prematurely at 34 weeks, weighing only 1.3kg. Together with foetal alcohol syndrome, this little girl also had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Enrolled at our Rainbow Daycare Centre in 2019, things got off to a very rocky start due to Patricia’s behavioural difficulties. But now, after two years of patience, never giving up and loving care, Patricia is a different child.
Her language has progressed from single words to short sentences. And the social skills she’s learnt have her taking an active part in the daily activities. She’s made tremendous progress, and we believe that there’s more to come.
The power of your donations is life-changing for a child like Patricia, and many others. Your kindness takes the ‘before’ to the miracle of the ‘after’.
And if you’d like to put your power to work again – especially now as we begin the season of giving – please send your special gift.
*Not her real name.
