We introduced you to Meheret Lakew two years ago. Meheret is a sweet 14 year-old girl who contracted meningitis at the age of 6 months. Like most children in Ethiopia, she had not been vaccinated against the illness, and it left devastating effects. Her ability to walk, talk, and control her bodily fluids was compromised.
Meheret requires regular physical therapy and the use of diapers. Her sponsorship pays for two diapers per day, but this is not enough. She requires additional support to afford enough diapers to stay clean all day and night.
For the past two years, Meheret has been blessed to receive sponsorship to cover the cost of these additional diapers and therapy. Before the extra sponsorship, Meheret slept on a plastic sheet at night and went without a diaper. Imagine having to put your child in this unsanitary situation.
Unfortunately, Meheret’s additional sponsorship has run out. She is in need of $60 per month in additional sponsorship to keep her in a steady supply of diapers.
Meheret and her mother face many challenges in their daily life. Living in poverty in Ethiopia and having a disability are independently difficult circumstances. In spite of it all, Meheret is a joyful girl. She always has a smile on her face and enjoys attending church service. Her mother does the best she can with the challenge of raising a disabled child in extreme poverty.
If you would like to bless this family by providing the additional sponsorship needed to cover her medical needs, we invite you to reach out to us.
