Thank you Mummy and Me!

With the kind support of Mummy and Me, eight children at Sharecare Rehabilitation Centre will receive special chairs or corner seats and physiotherapy. Their transportation for the therapy and follow-up at home is included.

Sharecare opted for appropriate paper-based technology on the advice of the producer because the children outgrow the devices very fast, It is taking a long time because of the rainy season. In the meantime the children have been having physiotherapy sessions.

The mothers are most grateful that their children are going to receive these devices and that they are doing physio again after a fallow period. Sharecare Ghana sincerely thanks Mummy and Me for your generous donation.

In Ghana…

Slight Improvement in Sharecare Children

With funding from the Women Have Wings Fund of Tides Foundation in honour of Ms. Farida N. Bedwei, twenty Sharecare children received special shoes and corrective devices as well as exercises to improve their mobility and communication skills. One year on, in spite of disruptions due to COVID-19, there has been improvement in some of the children, though little Hephze unfortunately passed on during the period. The programme must go on for it to make a significant impact because neurological conditions go with long term management.

Sharecare Ghana is sincerely grateful to the Women Have Wings Fund of Tides Foundation for making a difference to the lives of these children.
