Handicapped Children

volunteer opportunities in Africa with Sem Fronteiras (Elghana)Children with disabilities, ranging from mental to physical are usually hidden by parents in their rooms because the social norms are that it is a disgrace or a curse to give birth to a child with a disability. Many parents attempt to kill the children through starvation or other means that might not be obvious to police officers. A few passionate locals have taken it upon themselves to search for such children, when found, they take them to the hospital for a medical assessment, some require surgery and are sent for surgery, some require physiotherapy training and are offered physio training at the hospital, some require special education and are sent to rehabilitation centers for the disabled. We work with these grassroots people and the training centers. As a volunteer, you can be part of the grassroots team, help with the physio or assist at the training centers.
