Timion Disability Counselling and Community Development

The Timion Counselling Project seeks to help children living with disabilities in the townships of South Africa. They provide therapy, fit and issue specialized equipment and education for carers.

Anglican Aid's partner, Timion, noticed that the mothers of disabled children were often struggling to cope with their child's disability, poverty, loneliness and isolation due to the cultural stigmas surrounding disability. Therefore, in 2014 they employed a Xhosa-speaking (local language) counsellor to visit the mothers of disabled children. This has brought about a change in the life of many mothers who now meet together regularly to encourage each other in their often similar struggles. Timion's aim is to expand their counselling programs in order to have a greater impact on the lives of the disabled and their carers.
