Children with special needs, like physical and/or mental disabilities or learning difficulties, deserve a safe and caring environment. Some home situations are very difficult and a lot of those children are often on the streets, all by themselves. They are prone to a lot of dangers. The government is not offering much help in this regard.
The 115 children at Rainbow are intellectually stimulated and trained in social skills each on their own level. They are offered a loving, caring environment and two healthy meals a day. The oldest children are working in the Rainbow garden where the vegetables for these meals are grown.
Many of these children suffer from the alcohol abuse during the pregnancy, insufficient medical aid and bad hygiene.
