PROJECT: Mama Kevina Hope Centre for children with disabilities is located in Same District in Kilimanjaro Region Tanzania. It started in 2008 by LiGle Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi (LSOSF). It is a nonprofit making centre as it is only does a charity work of taking care of this special group of children. The centre takes care of the children with all kinds of disabilities. In 2021, we have had 35 children living in the centre, more than 10 children that we support which their school fees (they were resident children for Mama Kevina Kevina Hope Centre) and more than 200 living with their parents and come for therapy.
The centre provides the following services to the children with disability during the year 2021:
- Treatment: This includes surgery to the children to improve their physical situations, orthopedic, and operations, and medicine for those with epilepsy and other diseases. All the orthopedic, surgery, and operations takes place in the Referral hospital in KCMC, and Machame hospital and now day’s surgery can be done in the Same District hospital especially Club foot.
- Therapeutic exercises: Parents and caretakers of the centre are trained on how to carry out simple therapeutic exercises to the children by the Physiotherapist, and Community Rehabilitation Workers (CRW). The parents and children meet for two weeks every month for training and exercises. The activities take place in groups of ten to fiZeen children each week. For the year 2021 we had 263 children who came for therapy
who could not afford to come to the centre and to identify new patients since some hide their children.
