Imagine being bedridden 24 hours a day, 365.25 days of the year, your whole life until you die. Confined to a room with no way to view or participate in the world. With nothing to do all day except stare at the walls and roof. The months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds stretch into an eternity.  

This is the fate of 40 children. These bedridden orphans are divided into two rooms of 20 children each. 

Transform a life by contributing $10 a month. This will help pay for supplementary feeding, extra caregivers, and upgrade the environment (toys, feeding equipment etc).
