If LVDC is approached by someone seeking help we will try to accommodate them in any way possible. We will refer people for appropriate medical assistance, encourage mainstream schools to accept disabled students who have the capabilities, organise job placements, and train students in a skill at home if they are unable to travel to our centre.

Thanks to a number of donations in April we were able to take Chacha and Bertha to the ophthalmic consultant and Willy to the Ear, nose and throat specialist in Kikuyu Hospital, Nairobi. Bertha was successfully treated and some vision was restored. Unfortunately the procedure for Chacha is more complicated and was unable to be undertaken in Nairobi. Willy has an untreated cleft palate. Surgery is possible but due to his age will be expensive. LVDC hope to secure funds for this in the future.

LVDC try to improve the daily living conditions of people with disabilities. Emmanuel has severe learning disabilities and has never attanded school. LVDC had a wheelchair produced for him and a ramp built into his house. With the support of his family Emmanuel was given a variety of activities to help with communication.
