Most of the children at the Centre have sever cerebral
palsy causing their muscles to stiffen up tremendously.
The Caregivers provide a caring, stimulating environment,
where they help to make the children as comfortable
as possible with the aim of strengthened their little
bodies and helping them live with their disabilities.
A trained physiotherapist visits the centre once a
month, and each child has a daily activity card (for
example, ‘Encourage Pearl to stand at the table
and play with her blocks’.) In this way, it
allows for the whole family to live a normal life,
where the father and/or mother may work and the other
children do not have the adult responsibility of caring
full time for a sibling.
In 2006 the organisation moved into its current premises,
a house in Meadowlands, from where it hopes to expand
its services into the greater Soweto area. Mthimkhulu
is responsible for the payment of service charges
and the maintenance of the property.
There are 13 dedicated staff members taking care
of the children. X trained therapists.
