In what is the largest solo video edit I have undertaken, Reaching out to the Hidden and Forgotten (above) follows the story of three families living with the burden of disability in Kenya.
The teaser that was shared prior (below) highlights some of the lies that communities speak into the lives of families coping with disability.
It was an exceptionally difficult first visit to the homes of these families. One home the child was locked inside the house alone. Another child sat on the floor outside.
Seemingly no one to adequately care for those children . Yes, they were loved, but the strength needed to show that love was missing. Financial pressure, the daily challenge of caring for a child with disability 24/7, the stigma placed on the family by the community,
Sports Friends, which is a ministry of SIM, is currently working with the local church to reach out to these families and provide them with the support (and healing) that they need.
Having spent time with the families on a few occasions, I am encouraged by the transformation in their lives. I hope the video, hard hitting at first, encourages you too.
