Respite Care is a way to provide direct relief to the family caregiver’s health and wellbeing, by sending the caregivers on a short, much-deserved break to rejuvenate and revitalize them to return to face their daily challenges once more. Occasionally, the trauma of separation is too great for the caregiver or child and then the entire family goes away together, which will then be a Healing Retreat.
Outreach is done in the form of specialized wheelchairs, assistive devices, scholarships, learnerships, caregiver empowerment, job placements, food and clothing to individuals and special needs schools. A vital component for us is to advocate and promote for the rights of people with disabilities.
You Are the Difference!
According to UNICEF, there are 2.1 million children with disabilities in South Africa. In excess of 600 000 of them have no access to schools and many are taken care of by either single or child headed households. Your contribution can make a difference in the day to day functioning of these individuals, thus enriching their lives.
What Our Families are Saying
Tears streamed down my face when my son said the heart-warming words, ‘I can walk’ The joy on his face at that moment I can never exchange for anything. May the Almighty reward your foundation and may He bless you to continue doing for others what you have done for my son and my family.
