I am so excited to be going to Uganda with Hope Speaks. My daughter, Taylor, is currently working with Hope Speaks as an SLP in Uganda for 9 months, and I am looking forward to going over there for 1 week to see the work they are doing. I am not an SLP, but I am a dentist and I plan to offer any assistant I can with my skill set while I am there. The need is great and Hope Speaks is working hard to meet those needs.
Hope Speaks is a wonderful ministry to help children with disabilities in Kampala, Uganda. 1 in 7 children are living with a disability. Their main ministry is providing Speech Therapy to hundreds of these children. They teach them to swallow, chew, understand and express language, and so much more. Many of the volunteers are Speech Language Pathology grad students, as well as Speech Therapy professionals. This will help them reach many more children with these services.
Hope Speaks has gone beyond that and also includes hosting other groups who help with projects, food for families, children's day camps, and going and serving in the slums.
Every donation is important and will enable me to be present and help these children with disabilities. Would you kindly consider making a donation? Also, I would appreciate your willingness to share this with others who may want to participate.
Thank you so much for being a part of my life and helping me accomplish something that's important to all of us! God bless you!
