The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Crystal Foundation’s mission is a world in which all disabled children realize their full potential and their right to an inclusive community which supports them and their families.
Crystal Foundation is a Non-profit organization that works with children with disabilities with special attention to developmental and neurological disabilities like Autism, Down Syndrome and Learning disabilities.
Crystal Foundation supports children with special needs, (handicaps) by making sure that they have access to healthcare services. Crystal Foundation also ensure that these children get a form of training or education most suitable for them. We place a lot of emphasis on psycho-social support activities, to build self-love and confidence in a child. As we cannot work with children in isolation, it is necessary to work with the family of the child and in the communities where our children live. We ensure that parents/guardians of our children are economically empowered so they can provide for the basic needs of the child like clothing, food, shelter. Finally we carry out sensitization and advocacy activities in the homes and communities where our children live to create a society that is more inclusive and accepting of the child with a special need.
