The TiyendePamodzi Group and the physiotherapist Gift are doing a great work for the project “Let’s walk together”.
Several meetings have been organized with village leaders in order to sensitize the population about the problem of disability, widespread all over the Country.
32 volunteers attanded a course of physiotherapy in order to best meet the needs of people with disabilities and their families.
Since the beginning of the year, 23 adults and 176 children have attended rehabilitation sessions. During these meetings food is provided to all the children and their carers, and the undernourished children receive extra food.
19 sanitary principals were bought: among them wheelchairs, special walking frames and prostheses. We still need to buy many other principals to help a huge number of children to have a peaceful life and as normal as possible, but unfortunately the economic resources do not allow it. This is why sometimes we are obliged to make a selection among these children. It is the story of S., a two years old child who was obliged to amputate his leg because of a bad infection. We bought a prosthesis for him and now he has started the rehabilitation which will allow him to walk in less than one year.
