These three beautiful children live in an orphanage on the Kenya coast, where AIDS has left many children without families to take care of them. Their best chance for a productive life is a good education. Through our sponsorship program, The Children's Bridge Foundation sends these children to school, and provides them with the basic equipment they need to succeed - school uniforms, shoes and books. More importantly, the children know that there is someone out there who cares about them!
Ancheng was born with a meningiocele - his spinal cord bulged through his spinal column. This condition can compress the nerves, causing muscle weakness and paralysis, or problems with basic functions such as toiletting. In North America, surgery to correct this condition is done very young. Ancheng received his surgery through generous donations to the Children's Bridge Foundation, and today is a happy, healthy little boy with a bright future ahead of him!
