AGRICE shelter for blind and disabled children in Guinea-Bissau
There is a unique remote guardianship program for the children from the shelter. By becoming a guardian of a special child, you will make his or her life much better and, most likely, you yourself will experience the happiness of knowing that your family has become bigger. Many of our parents tell us that they truly consider the children to be a part of their family.

Sponsoring a child will cost €120 per month. This is enough for the bare minimum: food, basic necessities and basic education which helps children with disabilities adjust to life. You can divide this amount by €60 for two people.

The boy was born healthy, but then only his upper body started to grow normally, and the lower part of his body was very late. Because of this, his lower limbs became deformed. As a result, he could not do without a wheelchair - now it replaces his legs.

He is a very social and smiling young man.

Sera Muminatu
After the birth of a disabled girl, her parents decided to leave her in the hospital. At the moment, they are not alive.

Muminatu was in the hospital for a very long time. Then the hospital staff contacted the shelter. The girl was in a serious condition, and the shelter workers took care of her and were very concerned about her health.

Now the girl has grown up and feels well. A wheelchair was bought for her, and she can move around on her own.

Sera is passionate about singing. She really likes dresses.

Nhabali Braima
He has a congenital pathology. He's deaf-mute and doesn't walk. The boy understands everything, but due to muscular degeneration he does not react.

Braima's parents died. And he was blamed for their deaths, thinking he was the devil.

The remaining relatives fed the boy with leftovers, often leaving him hungry.

In 2006, the child was taken to a shelter AGRICE. Since then, this has been his home. The shelter loves and cares for him. Recently, a new wheelchair was bought for Brima.

Satam Kamara
The girl is deaf-mute. Satam lives in the village of Gabo, in a subdivision of the AGRICE shelter for blind children and children with disabilities. During the whole time of the girl's stay in the shelter, her mother visited her only once. The girl has never seen her father.

The shelter gave her the opportunity to learn the skills she needs to communicate with other children and adults. Here she feels safe, she has friends and a large family.

Amish Nkonda
The boy lives in a subdivision of the AGRICE shelter in the village of Gabo. This is where his home, friends and family are. His own parents have abandoned him.

The child was given to the shelter with broken and deformed limbs. The relatives who brought him said, "he was born like that - with broken bones." But a doctor from Holland, who later examined the boy, said this was not true. His legs and arms were broken on purpose. It's not possible to fall like that by accident.

Nkonda has muscle weakness. When he picks something up, he often drops it and can't hold it. He needs to train his muscles. In addition to the fact that the bones in both legs and one arm are severely deformed, they are also more fragile. Because of this, he is forbidden to run. Every four to six months, the boy has severe swelling in his joints. It is possible to alleviate his condition.

Nkonda is a very kind and caring boy. He always helps other children.

When Ebi was two weeks old, one of the wives of the boy's father, who could not have children, poured poison into his eyes. Then an unknown local doctor then sewed up the eight-month-old child's eyes.

The young mom had to give him to a shelter.

The Foundation tried to restore Ebi's sight and took him to a hospital in Istanbul, Turkey. But it turned out that there was no chance that he would be able to see.

The boy is very affectionate and kind and loves to play the drum. Now he is studying at the shelter as a blind person.
