COVID has turned all our lives upside down and humanity as a whole is entering unchartered waters. The impact is far greater for the poor and underprivileged.
You have supported Handi-Care in the past and hope that you will continue to support in these trying times. The children supported by Handi-Care are dependent on you for their continued growth and rehabilitation.
Can you please help? Every little contribution will help the children (ongoing activities are listed below).

Some of the ongoing activities which still need funding support to execute are :
- Protective material (face masks, hand sanitizers & hand wash for the people with disabilities as many are in direct physical contact with caregivers and support workers. Each kit is C$1.50.
- Salaries for the vulnerable community workers for 3 months - C$46,000
- At the Special School (Centre for Special Education where most of the children are sponsored by HCI donors), the teachers and therapists are providing activity-based virtual/online classes and training to the students and to their parents to carry out the regular activities which are essential for the growth of the child.
- Children in the Early Intervention program (where there are 1200 children enrolled and HCI donors have sponsored 300 children) are also receiving therapy and training through Tele-Therapy and E-Therapy programs, using tablets and phones.
