"Their mission is to lighten-up people’s lives in practical ways and to spread smiles around the globe." To achieve this mission, Communitywide Charities have develop programs that promote the wellness and sustenance of poor children, poor disable youths, and epilepsy patients in their world communities.

The Free Diapers-For-Babies program is designed to address the skin care and health concerns of poor new mothers and their babies in the United States. The greatest concern for parents is to keep their baby?s skin dry, healthy and free from diaper rash. Many things can cause diaper rash. Prolonged wetness, lack of air circulation, soap, chemical and dye allergies, ammonia formed by bacteria that interacts with urine left sitting against the skin and the growth of microbes in the diaper area can all be irritating and cause rashes. That is why they came up with the Free-Diapers-For-Babies program to address this need and they plan to donate disposable diapers to 5,000 Babies each year.Program:Wheel-Chair For DisablesBudget: $250,000Category: Human ServicesPopulation Served: Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.) Program Description: Millions of disable youths in third-world countries, especially in Africa are deprive of their freedom and mobility. Travel through the continent of Africa , and you will see thousands of disable young people crawling the streets among heavy automobile traffics. Governments authorities in those countries did not make enough provisions for the disables to give them Wheel-Chairs and their families cannot afford to by them one. The situation is terrible and need to be addressed right away by charitable organizations like ours.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
