Challenge

Beneficiaries are poor families and their mentally handicapped offspring. As busy daily-wage workers, they forgo opportunities for their child’s development. If there are no facilities in their communities, the affected children are denied timely intervention, which can prevent avoidable secondary handicaps. Women, particularly mothers of the disabled, need support to confront problems caused by poverty and their impact on the disability of their child.

Solution

Provide a mobile clinic to reach disabled citizens through identification and referral of patients, treatment of disabled people, and awareness and sensitization activities.

Long-Term Impact

Children with mental handicaps will have access to timely identification, and will benefit from services available in their communities and follow-ups at the Center. Prevalence of disabilities should decrease and the community will be better informed
