Disabled ≠Evil

In Ghana, children with mental or physical disabilities are considered a bad omen or curse.

Disabled children and their families are shunned

by their communities. Due to lack of education and resources, most live a life of desperate poverty. To avoid such hardship, many of these children are

hidden, abandoned in ill-equipped orphanages, left to die in the wilderness, or killed.

Help Us Make a Difference

Acacia Shade operates a home in Accra, Ghana, where abandoned disabled children receive care and education otherwise unavailable to them. We also work with Ghanaian organizations and government agencies to help educate communities and build long-term solutions for integrating these children back into families, schools and society. Please donate today! Every little bit helps us keep these children healthy, happy and safe.
