The Children’s Home opened in 1965 to provide facilities for those patients who are in need of extensive physiotherapy and training. In 1974 a swimming pool was added for hydrotherapy.
Many children have benefited from their stay at the centre. They not only learn to walk but are given the opportunity to attend school and to learn how to live in a community where respect is given to everyone regardless of tribe, social status, religion, family or economic background.
For the children it is an opportunity not only to be rehabilitated, but to meet many friends and have many experiences. It has always been the policy of the centre to create an atmosphere of peace, love and respect for one another. The children are given many opportunities to develop physically, emotionally and spiritually.
The children come from all areas of Ghana as well as other countries. They come from various levels of education as well as from different economic backgrounds. Here at the centre they are equal and they learn that we all deserve respect regardless of tribe, gender, religion or economic background.
Babies and other children who need their mothers, stay in another department of the centre. The average stay is between 6 and 8 weeks. During this time the mothers are taught how to continue treatment at home.
We continue to provide a family atmosphere for the children and see that the whole child is developed. We are grateful to have dental care provided by Beaver Clinic, Accra.
