Cerebral palsy not only affects those living with it but also the families and caregivers as well. The condition may come with visual, learning, hearing, speech, epilepsy impairments among other impairments which means that the guardians, especially the mothers, often have to quit their jobs or are fired from their jobs as full time care is required for their children.
This leaves them with little support or protection from the government hence they are not able to afford some basic items required to push them through the day.
At Rachael K Foundation we help this families by providing them with food and other basic household items as seen in the images below during our visits. For those who are physically challenged, we provide them with wheelchairs which facilitate their mobility and independence. Also, 90% of our beneficiaries need a daily supply of diapers to cater for their incontinence issues. For this reason, we make it our priority to provide a monthly supply of diapers during our visits.
