CEREBRAL palsy is caused by abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance and posture.

Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors. There may be problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing and speaking. Often babies with cerebral palsy do not roll over, sit, crawl, or walk.

This condition may sound horrific for an adult, but imagine a child experiencing it and going through the difficulties that is associated with it.

The children at Inqolobane Home For Children, are examples of what the condition is and what it does.

The challenges they face every day is evident through their eyes.

We at Boston Stanger requests individuals and organisations to assist in putting a smile on these children’s faces as they embark on a collection drive.

They are requesting sponsorship to make difference to the lives of 21 children aged between two and 19.

Majority of the children have cerebral palsy whilst the others are physically challenged. Many of the youngsters are orphaned and some neglected by families.

The children who wear nappies also do not attend school.

Boston Stanger is appealing for any contribution you wish to make towards uplifting the lives of the children.

Boston Stanger staff and students will be collecting non-perishable items, utensils, single bed sheets, water proof single mattress, clothes, toys or any item that you wish to donate (except cash).

Those wishing to donate towards this worthy cause can so by dropping of items at Boston Stanger situated at Stanger Mall or S3 Auto at Whitehouse Centre or KZN Car Paint Specialists on Cato Street alternatively you can contact 032 551 6374 to arrange for collection.
