The Foundation helps abandoned children with disabilities, regardless of gender, nationality, creed or religion. By May, 2007, it provided rehabilitation to about 500 children from the government homes in cooperation with local authorities. It also supports families who have children with disabilities living at home in rural areas, and provides physical therapies, advice, training, and develops parent support networks. CCD have provided training for organizations from Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam on how to develop services to the disabled in these countries.
