Joyous party for the disabaled

Disabled children are treated to a Christmas party.

The festive mood gripping the nation was also evident at the Alexandra Disability Movement where its beneficiaries were treated to a Christmas party.

The Kew-based organisation which has been in existence for more than 20 years, supports disabled children, youths and the elderly. The support includes day care and boarding for blind, deaf and physically challenged children, and slow learners. The organisation offers physiotherapy, speech and occupational therapy, and helps individuals to gain access to disability grants, pensions and government housing among others.

The organisation’s Jerry Mtimbane said despite their disabilities, the beneficiaries of the organisation matched their able-bodied counterparts in activities such as basket making. The products are sold to florists and other businesses and the income raise is shared among the beneficiaries and the organisation.

Sarah Chattergoon of General Mills bakery which has supported the organisation since its inception said, “We support their operating costs and provide toys suitable for their conditions.”

Mtimbane said their ultimate goal was to be a platform for the development of all rehabilitation services in Alexandra.
