GIVING love and care for children with a disability can go a long way towards making these children gain confidence in life, said Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) Executive Mayor Athol Trollip.

This was said during a speech at a handover of play equipment to Miracle Kids Stimulation Centre in Chatty on April 24.

The centre cares for 35 children with disabilities and the play equipment will go a long way to helping them exercise and lead a healthy and productive life.

“Miracle Kids Stimulation Centre is a beacon of hope for children with special needs. There are very few of those in our communities,” Trollip said.

“With the new play equipment it offers these children a quality of life they may not previously have had.”

The founder and manager of the centre, Genevieve Hendricks, said children at the centre receive all the support, attention and love that is lacking from communities.

According to Hendricks, the partnership with the Department of Health and the Cerebral Palsy Association makes the work of the centre easy to do despite the challenges faced.

She thanked the Municipality for the donation and assured the mayor that they were going to make full use of the play equipment.
