Parents urged not to hide celebral palsy children

Precious Viginia Home for severely disabled children is set to hold an awareness walk in Mumias West sub-county to sensitise the community on how to care for children with celebral palsy.

The director of the Home Electine Wanyama said that parents whose children suffer from celebral palsy face the challenge of taking care of the children and need support to help the children lead a decent life.

She told KNA in Mumias that the walk will be held on  December 6 from the cultural centre in Mumias town to Ekero and back from 9am in the morning.

The Director said that the walk aims at educating the community not to hide children with disabilities and instead give them a chance to lead a normal life.

The home which is situated at Matungu takes care of children with celebral palsy a condition which affects development of a child.

Ms Wanyama called on communities to desist from associating the condition with curses in the family saying it is a disease like any other and that children who suffer from it should not be left to die but be given special care.

She thanked the County government of Kakamega for allocating the Home one-acre of land on which the home is built.
