Give to Wukwashi
Wukwashi Wa Nzambi is committed to seeing all children living full lives.
It is all too common for disabled children in¬†the global south¬†to be isolated, neglected and written off as useless because of stigma, ignorance and¬†misguided beliefs.¬†In Zambia in particular, most children living with disabilities do not attend school and many rarely leave their own homes. Wukwashi’s staff strive to¬†convey that children with additional needs are just as valuable and significant as any others.
If you need proof of how Wukwashi changes young lives, just look at Silla. As a girl, Silla used to belong to one of Wukwashi’s support groups, where she and her family gained encouragement, advice and practical help in managing her disability. Now a young woman, Silla is thriving and volunteers at a Wukwashi support group, giving other children the same help she once received!
Wukwashi makes a tangible difference to disabled children, in all sorts¬†of ways.¬†At their¬†weekly support and physiotherapy groups, children with disabilities can play, make friends, receive vital therapy, and even be assessed for¬†mobility aids. These groups also provide the children‚Äôs parents and guardians with vital support.¬†Wukwashi also¬†helps disabled children to access education¬†and¬†learn simple life skills, so they can become more independent and make a contribution to their communities.
