Watch Athman Getting Mobile

4 March, 2011

This week we’ve spent a lot of time at the disability hospital here in the city of Dar es Salaam. But CBM’s partners also do a lot of work outside the gates of the hospital in the community around the city and outlying areas.

One of the biggest focuses in this community work is on working with children living with Cerebral Palsy. In todays video I speak with Brenda Msangi about this work and introduce you to 10 year old Athman who was at the hospital today to be fitted with new leg braces.

    My adult son & I inadvertently watched this video together yesterday, as we were working on our respective blogs. Little did I know the significance … Eirinn was born with CP & has had multiple surgeries … we were both very moved. (Luckily, although Eirinn will always walk with difficulty, his mind is just fine, and we are so blessed!) This work you are doing is so important Darren, where I’m sure the people are underpriviledged. Thank you again!

    Great work, as Tanzanian living abroad I am always ever so thankful to all the charity work most NGOs do. Disability is an area thats highly overlooked in Tanzania. Thank you for highlighting this.

  • Isabelle

    Wonderful work and testimonies. Thank you to all involved.

    What an inspirational work you are doing – every day a new story to show! I think you will struggle with “normal” life when you return from Africa. Africa and being able to be part of the solution gets in one’s blood. One managerial post open in Port Elizabeth, South Africa running children’s project!! Hee Hee.
