Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
Normal Request
A family of ten is in need of a refrigerator, 3 dressers, sofas, laminate or tile flooring in the hallway and a plumber to assist with getting draining water from the garage. As indicated, this is a family of ten. Some of the children in the home are diagnosed with significant medical issues Hirschsprung's disease, which this limits the mother and father to have full time jobs. The family had carpet, which they recently removed due to major stains that consisted of feces residue, which was caused by the children’s Ileostomy Stoma Sites/ colostomy bag. As sometimes the colostomy bag prolapsed meaning bulging or falling out of the child’s body. Since the carpet was removed, the floor is sticky and when the children walk on the floor, their feet get stuck on it. Laminate or tiled flooring would be beneficial for this family as it would be easier for the parents to clean after any stains or accidents that are made due to the colostomy bags. A plumber would be helpful so that the pipe that is considered not be working can get fixed to avoid water damage in the garage. The family needs a refrigerator so that they can be able to keep their food such as milk, vegetable, fruits in a cold temperature so the food will not perish quickly. Their current refrigerator is not working well. The 3 dressers will help the parents to keep the children’s clothing clean and folded, as a result, the children will have clean clothes to wear.
