Disability Care

Love changing lives.

15% of the world’s population lives with a disability.

World Health Organization

For children and adults with disabilities, a lack of access to medical support, therapy, or proper education about disabilities can leave them feeling alone and afraid. Our Disability Care programs seek to dismantle stereotypes and provide care to people living with disabilities so that they can experience and know how loved they are by God. It also helps meet people's physical needs by providing things like home-based care and support groups for parents, teachers, and caregivers.

Aubrey’s Story

 

A heart changed by Jesus

Before joining our disability care work in Malawi, Ethel's mother was ashamed of her daughter simply because Ethel had been born with a disability. But all that began to change when Ethel's mother encountered the love of Jesus.

On a bright, sunny day I made my way to Mpemba. This is an area just outside of Blantyre, the city I live in and where Kingdom Workers Malawi is headquartered. Although not far from Blantyre, the area feels very rural.

We turned off the main paved road onto a bumpy dirt track winding through plots of corn interspersed with village homes. As we drove, I thought about how beautiful this country is, and I felt grateful to the people I was about to meet for being willing to share their stories.

Make a lasting impact. Support Kingdom Workers today.
