Momotombo e.V. – We support children with disabilities in Nicaragua
Since January 2015, we finance a psychologist working for the Los Pipitos León branch. With her, affected families have a focal person to cope with daily challenges, their concerns and fears. The psychologist offers both group sessions with the entire family and individual therapy with the respective child or the caretaker. In these sessions, the psychological development of the child is discussed. They also aim to find the right balance between overload and exaggerated care which might hinder the autonomy of the child. In extreme cases, abuse and domestic violence have to be addressed.
