Main aim of the charity

To create a safe space and environment to allow cerebral palsy children obtain full realisation of their potentials. This is effected by social awareness in communication to society,providing monetary and skills to support the children grow to be the best version of themselves.

How the employee got involved and why

I began volunteering and fundraising in 2019 after experiencing the lack of empathy as a primary caregiver and feeling the stigmatisation, the lack and scarcity of specialised facilities and educational or skill centres for cp kids as well as limited supply of assistive devices eg wheelchairs,commodores and play spaces that accommodated cp children.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I am a volunteer as and also help to raise funds for cerebral palsy kids. Majorly though social advocacy creating awareness to reduce stigmatisation by through sharing information on cp and normalising CP kids as abled differently. Getting support from friends to help buy food supplies, diapers for big CP children and medication.
