It is hoped that a Harambee will run in Nairobi in 2018. It is our objective from this Harambee to raise 10m ksh to complete the centre and a wheelchair manufacturing workshop.
To enable the Rehema centre to operate as a residential respite and assessment centre, it requires additional infrastructure. A further dormitory and therapy room is required, together with kitchen, dining/play area, treatment room, outreach training room, and staff rooms. Once established it will be a resource that can be used by the whole County, and can be a centre for both working with children and their parents, and a centre of education for health professionals. Bringing experts in paediatric care from across Kenya and other countries, we can establish the Rehema centre as a centre of excellence.
The disabled community needs access to low cost durable wheelchairs. Engineers from the UK and Kenya are considering this problem, and suggesting creative solutions.
To manufacture these a new wheelchair workshop is planned to be built next to the existing APT workshop. It is our hope that this can be funded from the 2018 Harambee.
