Following Houses of Hope

For a child growing up in poverty with spina bifida or hydrocephalus, your support makes a huge difference. Your donation means medical equipment or an operation. This significantly improves the quality of life and gives the child a future.

€20 = 1 year of continence material

Give a child continence materials for a year.

This is essential in the follow-up of children with spina bifida. This way, they are dry and infection-free and can have a real social life by going to school and playing with friends.

€47 = 1 shunt

Donate a shunt needed for life-saving surgery.

The shunt is a fairly simple implant, needed to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid into the abdominal cavity. €47 is unaffordable in countries where simple farmers often earn less than €1 a day.

€120 = 1 operation

Give a child continence materials for a year.

The surgeon uses an endoscope to make an opening in one of the ventricles of the brain, allowing the cerebrospinal fluid to leave and enter the bloodstream.

Donate to Child-Help

It is practically impossible to start life for children with spina bifida or hydrocephalus living in the South.

Support them – for everyone has the right to a humane existence.

Help children to have a worthwhile life.
