UHAMBO SAYS:
Chrissy Mills, Thank you fo…
Chrissy Mills,

Thank you for your generous donation to Uhambo! With your contribution we can expand on our current project at the Huis Talje Children’s Home in Warmbaths, South Africa.

Uhambo is the recipient of a Global Grant from Rotary International which has provided appropriately-designed wheelchairs for 40 severely physically and mentally disabled children, as well as training on disability for the caregivers. During the implementation of this project, we have identified that there is a need for additional training, awareness-building and advocacy activities in the community for disability issues. Social stigma is still significant in many parts of South Africa and often families self-isolate in order to avoid public scrutiny. Uhambo follows a holistic model to serve the individual, the family and the community to overcome barriers and increase inclusion opportunities for children with disabilities. By working at the community level, Uhambo builds a network of inspired and engaged individuals who want to transform the perception of people with disabilities.

We are proud of our award-winning, comprehensive and social entrepreneurial model – thanks to the leadership of our founder, Shona McDonald, and the Uhambo team in Cape Town.

Many thanks to you and Andrew for his hard work and dedication and helping to create new opportunities for children with disabilities.

With gratitude,

Lucinda Kerschensteiner
