Project: Tsad Kadima
Tsad Kadima operates educational rehabilitative centres for children with cerebral palsy. Teams of physiotherapists, speech therapists and occupational therapists work with the children to overcome difficulties in motor function, language and social skills. Tsad Kadima employs a 'Conductive Education' method to maximize potential and integrate the children into mainstream society. Children who have severe motor disabilities and can't stand are more susceptible to broken bones. Jewish Child's Day has funded standing aids which act in a preventative capacity and help strengthen muscle tone.
How your donations help fund sports for kids with disabilities Jewish Child’s Day funds specialist riding, ice skating, football, cycling, swimming and hydrotherapy sessions and outdoor activity programmes. These activities are hugely rewarding and positively contribute to the physical, social, intellectual and emotional development of children with special needs - helping them to build strength, confidence and self-esteem.
The message kids take away from these activities is:
I CAN! – I can participate, I can contribute, I can achieve
