Malamulele therapist, Fiona Semple did daily therapy with Mihlali Danile who has Cerebral Palsy. She involved his sister and caregiver in the therapy sessions so that she can continue his programme at home and teach others what she has learnt.

Joining forces to learn and share

Therapists from the Zithulele Rehabilitation Department were thrilled to host Malamulele Onward, a NGO that provides specialised therapy services, equipment and caregiver training to under-resourced rural areas.  Malamulele started working with the Zithulele Rehabilitation Department in 2008 when their volunteer team of Neurodevelopmental Therapists conducted a week of outreach at Madwaleni Hospital. A team of therapists return annually to share their skills and knowledge.

Therapists from the Zithulele Rehabilitation Department identified local children with Cerebral Palsy and their caregivers who participated in four days of intervention and training from the Malamulele therapists.  The caregivers and Zithulele Therapists learnt new ways in which they can help to develop the potential and functionality of the children under their care.

The week-long visit provided an invaluable opportunity for Malamulele therapists, local caregivers and therapists from the Zithulele Rehabilitation Department to work together and learn from one another.
