According to Lloyd and Sharon, they found OTC on the famous BBC documentary, ‘Worst place in the world to be disabled?’  Afterwards they wanted to know the place, and see if we would be interested in some of their mobility and assistive devices. Lloyd, Sharon and Victor (projects manager) visited the OTC prior to their donation. They were here to see the center, and show us some of the items they have to offer. Sis. Elizabeth the director of OTC received them with the public relations person. Sister was very excited when she was shown the kind of devices OTC will be picking up the following day at Farm4Life warehouse.

Sharon and Lloyd’s visit to OTC

Farm4Life donated a number of specialized wheelchairs for children with Cerebral Palsy (CP); commode-wheelchairs; shower seats; clubfoot braces; normal wheelchairs and many other items. The representatives of Farm4Life were happy the centre was picking up these items.

 

We are very grateful to Farm4Life for this opportunity they have given children with CP and many other patients through their donation. We know our patients and clients who receive these items will ooze joy and gratitude. Thanks goes also to PhysioNet, we were told you collected these items for Farm4Life.

Donation is our backbone here at OTC so we humbly appeal to individuals and organizations to keep supporting us in cash or kind.
