If you’re not living in poverty, something like asthma is a pretty non-threatening diagnosis. But for so many children living in poverty, basic healthcare doesn’t exist. Doctors are scarce. Even if you can get access to an inhaler, you can’t afford it. A child passes away every five seconds, and most of those death could be avoided with proper care. (compassion.org)
RW Supply + Design’s mission is that we exist UNTIL EVERY CHILD IS HOME. We do this through supporting organizations that work with orphaned children and supporting adoption. However, we also seek to learn about the factors that cause children to be abandoned. Lack of healthcare is one reason that families around the world feel forced to abandon their child(ren). Additionally, special needs can cause children to bebe adopted.
Meeting healthcare needs for children and their immediate families is part of providing a stable ‘home’ for children. The ability to support organizations that provide healthcare resources for both intact families and abandoned children is solely because of the work that you do each day.
