Kudakwashe was one of the children in the initial group who came to Isaiah´s shortly after registration from being housed at the local hospital with no alternative place for his care.
Kuda is almost 11 years old now, he attends a school specialising in children with disabilities where he receives appropriate development and therapy for his cerebral palsy. It was 8 years ago that we first met Kuda when visiting the hospital to spend some time with the abandoned children being housed there, he was such a precious little guy – such a beautiful dimpled smile, and to this day that is one of his most outstanding features.
Kuda went to live with a foster family for about 5 years but sadly they felt they were unable to provide long term for his special needs, and in October 2013 he returned to Isaiah´s. It was devastating to see the rejection he felt by this but we are delighted that God has settled his heart and he is doing well with so many children around him who dearly love him. Kuda has been receiving additional physiotherapy twice a week which has greatly improved his core strength. This strengthening is working to correct the curvature of his spine which has improved his mobility.
His speech is affected by his cerebral palsy which makes audibility of his words poor, with being more mobile he is now able to get to a standing position on his own however he cannot yet walk unassisted. We believe over time and with the right support he will do exceedingly beyond what many believed in the early years of his life when he was abandoned.
Change the life of Kudakwashe for less than the price of a cup of coffee a day.
Make a difference.
