Challenge

The Sanctuary currently provides shelter for eighty two (82) residents, twenty five (25) of these residents have no means of support and the Sanctuary has to carry the entire cost of their treatment and care. This includes providing for their every need such as feeding and nutrition, providing assistance with everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, eating etc. We also provide various forms of therapy, as well as rehabilitation and stimulation programmes.

Solution

It will equip Woodside Sanctuary with the much-needed funds to continue providing a place of safety, holistic care and stimulation for the profoundly intellectually disabled orphans we look after. Each resident will receive 3 fully balanced nutritional meals each day, they'll also be able to participate in our daily rehabilitation and stimulation programmes which include; Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Music and Movement Therapy, Remedial Teaching Programme, and special needs offering.

Long-Term Impact

Profoundly intellectually disabled people require lifelong care, they will never be able to care for themselves or filter into normal society. This is an ongoing project and will require ongoing funding because of the service Woodside Sanctuary provides. Receiving ongoing support will allow us to have the means to continue providing our orphans with the nutritional, nursing, stimulation, physical and physiological care they need in order to reach their full potential and live rewarding lives.
