Malamulele Onward is a non-profit organization that has taken on the substantial task of identifying and helping caregivers of children with cerebral palsy (CP) in some of the most deprived areas of Southern Africa. The project started out in the Malamulele area of Limpopo Province and rapidly expanded to the Eastern Cape. As a group of volunteer health professionals, over the years we noticed that children severely disabled by cerebral palsy survive, often into adulthood, but they and their families are neglected by the health and education systems. This results in children whose potential is often compromised while their families struggle on in ignorance of interventions that would ease their own lives and the lives of the affected children.
Malamulele Onward has been operating for nearly four years. We became a more formalized organization when we were registered as a Section 21 Company in October 2006. To date eight outreach projects in Limpopo and in the Eastern Cape have been completed involving 166 children and their caregivers and over 20 local rehabilitation therapists.
SANDTA has representation on the Malamulele Onward Board and MO uses NDT therapists for intervention. The MO interventions have been a fantastic training opportunity for therapists:-
