Currently home cares for 34 disabled children between the ages of 18 months to 18 years old, ranging from those with mild physical and mental disabilities to children who have more severe disabilities. As many children in this underprivileged community have single or unemployed parents, they are subject to being left unattended and are vulnerable to abuse.
