The community worker of Needs For Children often goes to the remote villages to search for children who need our help. In this way she also meets a lot of children with a handicap. Life for them is extra difficult because of lack of special tools. Needs For Children helps them by, for example, giving a wheelchair, tricycle or crutches. Together with the family we search for what the child needs the most.
