DCC Kenya update May 2022

A new sitting aid helps with particiation and play
A new sitting aid helps with particiation and play

The Disability Community Centre continues to provide assistive devices to children with disabilities. Some of these essential items are the sitting and standing aids. These devices are used by children who have a challenge in standing and/or sitting. They are essential in ensuring the children are able to participate in daily activities including joining the family routine and participating in play activities with other children.

The challenge is that the conventional sitting and standing aids are beyond the reach of most of the parents due to the cost. The DCC has embarked on making these items through appropriate technology. They are being manufactured using simple items such as paper and cardboard. The cost of the DCC item is just a fraction of the price of the conventional ones (less than a quarter of the cost). But some parents still cannot afford the cheaper DCC items. Please consider a donation if you would like to help these families. 

The pictures below demonstrate the process of making the items as well as children enjoying the end products...
