Crowdfunding for our Cambodia Sensory Spaces

by SicKids Vetted since 2016

Summary

In May 2018 we'll be travelling to South West Cambodia to build another two SicKids Sensory Spaces, following the launch of our First SicKids Sensory Space in Cambodia in November 2017. We want to build more than a "basic" room for the children and young people living in and around the streets and beaches of South West Cambodia. We want to go one better and make sure these two spaces are fully equipped with up to date, exciting equipment. All of your donations will help us to do this!

Challenge

For children with developmental delay a sensory space could mean the difference between long term disabilities and mobility issues, and good health and happiness. We want to make sure our Sensory Spaces have all the equipment we need for children with developmental delay, a learning disability, mobility issues, or visual/hearing impairment. Therefore we really need your support to fund specialist equipment.

Solution

While all children in a clinic or hospital might benefit from additional sensory support, for those with developmental delay, mobility issues, or visual/hearing impairment this might make their visit so much more pleasant. Sensory equipment is designed specifically to support the development of the senses - like touch, hearing and sight - through cool things like special lighting, music, and tactile objects.

Long-Term Impact

Enabling children to take part in sensory play helps them develop and refine the use of their senses and enhances their development and well being. Sensory play can boost children's touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste. This can help a disabled child's development significantly improve. It may also help a child to develop enhanced gross motor skills (walking, jumping, running, climbing) and fine motor (writing, drawing, eating, drinking) skills as well as behavioral and emotional development.
