Stakeholders and beneficiaries of the Association attended the 62nd AGM on Thursday 17 September 2015 at The Village Work Centre in Claremont.
In his address the Chairperson of the Board, Mr Noor Osman, focussed on the review of the Association’s services and the changes implemented during the past year to ensure that the Association responded appropriately to the changing needs of its beneficiaries.
Mr. Osman noted that one of the highlights of the past year was formalising a partnership with the Provincial Department of Social Development in providing a Community Day Programme, for adults with cerebral palsy who are isolated at home without any meaningful interaction with people other than their immediate families. Attending a Day Programme provides these adults with an opportunity to participate in occupational and socialisation activities and learn new skills which would contribute to their health and well-being and prevent isolation as well as the deterioration of their disability.
The Association also celebrated a significant milestone with the 25th celebration of Rosedon House, its residential facility for adults with Cerebral Palsy.
Mr Osman concluded by paying tribute to the Association’s funders, donors and volunteers for their valuable contributions that make it possible for the Association to continue to provide much needed services to children and adults with cerebral palsy.
