Our Campaign Story

Celebral palsy (CP), the most common disability in childhood, is a group of neurological disorders that can cause disability in movement, balance and posture.

According to a childhood disability research (Australian Celebral Palsy Register Report 2013), children with CP may experience a range of physical and cognitive impairments, some of which are as follows:

1 in 3 - unable to walk
1 in 4 - unable to talk
1 in 2 - has intellectual impairment
1 in 4 - has epilepsy
1 in 4 - has bladder control problem
1 in 4 - has behaviour disorder
3 in 4 - experience pain

At least 2/3 of children with CP will have difficulties affecting movement of one or both arms. This means daily activities like eating, dressing, writing, catching a ball etc can be a challenge.

CP is a lifelong disability and there is no cure. But with your kind donation, children with CP can access to rehabilitation services, therapy, special needs programmes, assistive equipment or device and other resources that can greatly improve their quality of life.

While these children may have to live with the weakness or difficulty in using their muscles, your gift can help them live their strengths and lead fulfilling life.

Thank you so much for making a world of difference to their lives.
