We are in unprecedented times and the stresses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that all of us have been hit with a level of hardship in some way shape or form. It is in this time that the most vulnerable in our communities face the biggest challenges.
 
The pandemic has seen millions of families working, educating and caring for their loved ones at home, but what about those families who had financial hardship before the crisis? Or those families who’s child is sick or has a disability? What if you are dealing with all three of these scenarios?  The extra burden on these families is immense and they need your help.
 
Our families are in need of technology, resources and activities to help educate their children. With your help, KidzWish will grant these wishes!

Arinya is a little chatter box, who is always on the go. She loves music and particularly enjoys teaching her little brother Jarli to sing and dance. Arinya has Lvl 2 ASD (autism) and her mother Heidi says that music is a great way to calm Arinya.

Arinya doesn’t have access to a computer which has meant that on top of the challenges that come with Arinyas autism, homeschooling has been extremely difficult for the family often meaning Arinya is missing out on the education she deserves. KidzWish hopes with the support of the community to provide Arinya with a tablet or computer and printer so that Arinya can continue to learn and thrive like other children her age.
