THABAZIMBI – Every child deserves the best care. Spitskop Special Needs School recently received a generous donation from SEESA to assist them in educating and caring for children with special needs.
SEESA visited Spitskop Special Needs School on Thursday, 15 May 2014 to donate the amount of R40 000.00 to buy equipment needed to provide children diagnosed with cerebral palsy with physiotherapy.
The school provides education and ongoing care for children with pervasive developmental disorders, such as Autism, Down’s syndrome, epilepsy, brain damage, cerebral palsy, learning (intellectual) barriers and other problems that affect normal development. They also facilitate parent and community informative and educational sessions.
Tersia Landsberg, SEESA Communications Officer, said: “Since the school receives no government support, they are largely dependent on private and corporate sponsors. SEESA gladly supports their commitment to the education of children in the community who cannot attend mainstream schools.”
The school aims to educate and equip the learners with valuable skills and the best possible education, and this is a cause close to SEESA’s heart. For more information about SEESA’s Social Economic Development projects, visit www.seesa.co.za.
