By Ruth Tenai - President and Founder Step Up 4 Autism
Kindness is still the best antidote and we want to begin by thanking you for your continued kindness and show of support that you have given to us throughout this year. This year 2020 has been unusual and full of surprises. We had to stop our services for a while in the month of March when the first case of covid 19 was announced in Kenya. We later resumed in June 2020 when the cases began to go down and the government relaxed some of the measures.
The work we do through your help involves offering therapy serves for free every other Saturday as from 8 am to 2 pm in Mathare slums, Nairobi at the step-up 4 autism therapy center which is largely funded by efforts of members and kind friends and donors like you.
Through your giving to this project up to 30 active children under our project receive free occupational therapy services, consultations on disability matters, and free assessments. We also take it upon ourselves to train the parents of the children with disability that we serve on the management of their children and how to do home-based occupational therapy
currently, our needs at the therapy center include food in form of rice, dry grains, and cooking oil to give to the parents of children with disabilities under our project so as to help them have meals during these hard covid 19 times.
We want to thank you once again for making this possible.
