Welcome to Cerebral Palsy Society of Kenya

Cerebral Palsy Society of Kenya (CPSK) is a charitable Organisation working towards the improvement of the welfare of children/persons afflicted by Cerebral Palsy (C.P) in the Country. The Society was formed in 1994 by parents/guardians of children afflicted by Cerebral Palsy and has remained steadfast in its endeavour to enable as many children as possible live more fulfilling lives. Being a charitable Organization, CPSK relies wholly on support from well-wishers and other people of goodwill for its upkeep. Today, the Society caters for over 500 children/persons who benefit directly from therapy and rehabilitation services.

 

 

Since inception the CPSK has been in the fore-front in creating awareness among parents and the general public about cerebral palsy and thus this forms one of the core activities of the organization. The impact of the previous walks has been huge judging from the numbers of children/persons enrolled for therapy and we expect the same response this year.

Cerebral palsy condition is non-generative condition, however, without early intervention, the situation deteriorates. The children/persons form what we call contractures or secondary deformities in lay man’s language. Rehabilitation therefore is offered to children between the ages of months to six years. This is the age when much can be achieved and therefore the outpatient clinic at Donholm allocates two sessions in a week to these children.
