Parents of disabled children are often troubled by the notion what would happen to the children after the mom and dad become ill and deceased. It is not uncommon for parents to commit sinfully acts before leaving this world.
To prevent family tragedy from occurring, the Canaan Disability Home (CDH) Fund is dedicated to safeguarding the dignity and respect of the impoverished and the severely disabled. Established in 2008, CDH is a non-profit organization providing social welfare, long-term care services to severely disabled individuals living below the poverty line. CDH has been operating at maximum capacity since 2009, providing care to 54 disabled patients. The average age of the disabled patients is 50 years old.
With over 700 impoverished disabled people in Pingtung County waiting for placement in disabled homes, the board chairman of CDH donated 1720m2 of land for the NEST project. This project will construct a new disability care center with an 72-bed capacity. The total construction cost of NEST project is US$2.5 million. After urgent fundraising efforts, as of April 2015, there is US$500,000 remaining. Your contributions to the fund will change lives of severely disabled and their family. Completing the NEST project will lift the burden of 72 low-income disabled families, as well as create at least 40 employment opportunities in rural Pintung County.
