Mental health is big issue of the world to be addressed. Disability under mental health is called Intellectual Disability which causes Down Syndrome, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Dyslexia, & other forms of disabilities causes great hindrances in the child growth. These children are much ignored in developing countries, no proper rehabilitation windows are available in the hospitals. In rural areas you will not find single facility. This problem needs to addressed in rural areas of Sindh, Pak.

Solution

NDF has taken initiative to address the issue through Two Rehabilitation Centers in Nawabshah, Karachi and Larkana to provide rehabilitation services to 300+ children with intellectual disabilities with Boarding & Day care. After success, now services scaled up in larkana & Gulistan e Johar Karachi as new units with same above service, both new Centers need funds regularly to meet recurring costs to run daily business of facilities in rural Sindh province of Pakistan.

The Rehabilitation of such children needs time taking process, the impact is long lasting as one child is rehabilitated he/she may be mainstreamed. These children need proper attention to move forward but it needed untiring efforts & process of rehabilitation. The parents should encourage their children to avail facilities regularly as much possible to have rehabilitated child. Both Centers provide free facility, your donations will matter to provide facilities to the children in need.
