Holistic care

Take Flight is developing a model to meet the needs of these families through training local OTs, physios, speech therapists and special education teachers. We pray that the government will adopt this model, in time.

By providing an holistic approach to care, including psychological support and trained social workers managing each child’s case, the centre will provide a launch point for a shift in how children with CP and their families are supported.

Families who participate, both in the pilot and in coming years, will be more in control of their progress as they learn how to overcome obstacles, not be thwarted by them.

Economically, people will have been supported to undertake changes (remodelling bathrooms, accessing assistive products and education supports) in a way that does not put them into poverty.

A Sunny smile

Sunny is one of the children whose life has been changed by God, through the work of Take Flight.  Left alone in an orphanage, and without human interaction she had retreated into her own world. She didn’t walk or respond to stimuli. But, with love, singing, stretches, exercise, talking, holding, laughter and play — all the things every child deserves — she flourished. Sunny now daily enjoys the warmth and love of a foster family; never alone, exploring, playing and lots of cuddles!
