Having a child with a disability in Kenya is an enormous emotional, physical, and financial burden for children and their families. The cost of therapy and equipment is simply unaffordable for many families, leaving many children underserved. They sometimes live in isolation and family members often are unable to work because they choose to stay home with their children.

In July of 2016, the Special Needs Clinic (SNC) at Tenwek Hospital officially began its ministry for children with disabilities. Children from birth to age 18 can now receive proper identification, assessment, and management of various disabilities at the SNC.

The SNC was the dream of Solomon Rop, a physical therapist at Tenwek. Join us as we follow Solomon for an ordinary Friday afternoon: delivering wheelchairs. You can support this ministry at
