Outreach

The Outreach Programme is designed to cater for additional needs of individuals living with disabilities. We provide services to individuals and families to enhance the quality of their lives.  The organisation does this by assessing recipients' day to day activities,  providing them with material and emotional support, as well as specialized asisstive devices. 

We endeavour to empower families of children with disabilities by providing them with specific, individualised opportunities to allow them to be as self-sustaining and independent as possible.

Care4u2 was able to help Glenda, a mum to a special needs child, who needed a stove and cabinets for her home. She says that she is so grateful as she can now cook food for her family. She also wants to start selling food to help sustain an income and not be totally dependent on the social grant. Thank you to the donor who donated both the stove and cabinets.

Vanessa is an active young lady who works in the Protective workshop section at Nokuthula School. Her Occupational Therapist noted that she needed some assistance with her eye sight and contacted Care4u2 for assistance. Vanessa's Mum could not afford to buy her a pair of spectacles and she was on a long waiting list at the public hospital to receive a pair. Since receiving a pair of spectacles she has been working diligently at all tasks.

Nokuthula Special School in Alexandra was one of our wheelchair drive recipients. Although the department of Education issues wheelchairs for all learners, the parents still need support for a wheelchair to use at home. All these wheelchairs were for home use.

All our recipients come from very needy households and communities. We strive to assist the families to be self sustainable when we can, by providing them with goods to sell.
