My name is Amena and Respite care has changed all our lives

“My name is Amena. My son is a registered disabled child in Children’s Hope respite care. Now, because he gets this care, I can now go to work as a maid, cooking and cleaning, as I cannot rely on my husband’s earnings because he is ill with diabetes and a heart complaint.  Thanks to Children's Hope, not only does my son receive care and decent nutrition, it also gives me the opportunity to regain more control over what happens to my family by allowing me to save some money for my son and to send my other daughter to school. Respite care has changed all our lives.”
