New projects approved in 2021!

The county Oost-Vlaanderen in Belgium sponsors the Adapted Paper Based Technology project. The workshop is in full production after training more fathers and therapists in this technique. Children are receiving an adapted chair, standing frame, side lying board, wedge… depending on the need they have. It is important to offer the best device to enhance functionality. Kolabo has organized fundraising activities to contribute to this project.

The county West-Vlaanderen in Belgium has approved the project to expand Wezesha in rural areas. Part of the donation will be used to purchase a minibus. This will allow SEP to go with more people and more equipment, and reaching more communities, children with disabilities and their families. Kolabo and the Levert Foundation from the Netherlands are contributing to this expansion.

Miva Switzerland is the main donor for the purchase of the minibus. SEP has identified the vehicle and is in the process of buying it. The SEP team is excited to have a minibus that will bring us to many new horizons. It is a 10 seater so the SEP intern members will now have more opportunities to join the rural program Wezesha.

Kortrijk in Belgium has approved a project on splinting. Many children SEP is working with need a hand splint to enhance functionality and independence in daily life skills. This project will start in January 22 with training staff to maximize delivery of these devices in the SEP communities.

A big thank you to all donors who make it possible to expand and improve our services. Thanks to the dynamic Kolabo team to put their shoulders under the SEP projects!
