Zimnat handed over bed linen, an examination bed and a storage container, together worth more than $7 000, to St Christopher’s Children with Disability Centre in Hatcliffe, which provides services for children with disabilities.
The storage container is for storing equipment and various materials used at the centre.
St Christopher’s Children with Disability Centre’s major focus areas include various types of therapy, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy, aimed at improving or restoring children’s lost functions or compensating for them through the provision of various aids.
It also offers activities to help children with disabilities cope with daily living and improve their quality of life as well as that of their families. It offers too support and counselling to the children and their families.
Zimnat group marketing executive Angela Mpala said Zimnat, which aims to make life better for others, was happy to be able to partner St Christopher’s Centre in making life better for disabled children.
“St Christopher’s Centre is providing much needed assistance to children with disabilities. Apart from the various forms of therapy it offers, its efforts to combat and eliminate discrimination against children with disabilities and their families is very much in line with our own motto of making life better for others,” she said.
“We fully identify with their goal of working towards a society in which children with disabilities participate fully and enjoy the fundamental rights that we are all entitled to.
“The different forms of therapy provided at St Christopher’s Centre are important in helping children with disabilities overcome the challenges they face as a result of their disabilities.
“We are happy to be able to partner the centre and support its work through the donation of bed linen, an examination bed and a storage container, all of which the centre identified as among its major needs,” Ms Mpala said.
