Home Visits

A substantial number of the children the centre services are unable to travel because of disability.

 

Volunteers visit over 75 homes on a monthly basis to deliver food hampers that provide supplemental feeding for a month, and to check on the welfare of the children.  Specific equipment is supplied where necessary, including wheelchairs and other mobility devices.  Below are some examples of these children:

 
Both siblings have disabilities restricting mobility; they rarely leave their homestead.  The trust supplies food and wheelchairs.

Watch this for something truly spectacular!

Gerald has a congenital disability and cannot walk. He travels 6kms to a nearby school. His 10 yr old brother pushes him to school in the morning but he has to return on his own in the afternoon.

The centre provides feeding support, psycho-social support and will be providing a new wheelchair in the near future.
