Today we had the family with the two children with special needs come to the office. This family is going through a very difficult time. http://mayanfamilies-sharon.blogspot.com/2016/01/family-with-special-needs-childrenin.html The children all saw the doctor for the special needs this morning and then the whole family saw the Pediatrician in the afternoon. The parents want to send the two girls to school who are 6 years and 9 years old. None of the children have ever been to the doctor. They are scared to send the special needs children to the school, even the special needs school as they are scared they may be hurt.
The girl on the left hand side of this photo is 11 years old. Her 9 year old sister is standing next to her. Both children on each end are special needs and have never had any treatment. The two taller girls are 9 years old and 6 years old. All the children are malnourished. We hope to have the 9 year old and the 6 year old enrolled in school tomorrow. They have never been to school. We need sponsors for them. If anyone would like to sponsor one of them, or both, please write to Sharon@mayanfamilies.org. . Their family aid number is FA #644 . Thank you to the very kind people who donated money for food for the family. They were able to receive food, medical care, shoes and clothing today.
