Established in 1969, the KwaZulu-Natal Cerebral Palsy Association is a registered welfare organisation which strives to enhance the welfare and functional independence of people with Cerebral Palsy.



As we prepare to celebrate Mother's Day ...

Please spare a thought for those mothers who won't get a precious hand made card on Sunday, 10 May ... or a bouquet of wilting flowers lovingly picked from the garden.

For the moms who will never experience the joy of seeing their child take his or her first wobbly step. Who will always have to bath and dress them, feed them and brush their teeth for them.

For those whose beloved children will never be top of the class, or make the first team, or go to university and become doctors or scientists or teachers. Who will never plan their son or daughter's wedding or welcome a grandchild.

To all mothers of CP children with severe physical and intellectual disabilities – we salute you.

You are the bravest, strongest people on earth – and the love you feel for your children is an inspiration to us all.

DonateHaving someone understand, and care enough to share the task of providing 24 hour love and care, is the most precious gift you can give the mother of a child with severe Cerebral Palsy.

Please will you give one of our moms this gift right now, in time for Mother's Day on Sunday 10 May?

Your kindness makes it possible for children with Cerebral Palsy to attend our special centre – where they are safe and loved, and where they can participate in activities suited to their level of ability. Thank you for caring!

When something goes wrong, we often seek someone to blame. Having someone to blame is comforting, it allows our society to believe that by avoiding that person‘s “mistakes“, everyone else will be spared their fate.

In November my cousin and I were ambushed by a robber as we prepared to leave the house for a business meeting. I was then trapped alone in the car for 45 minutes while the man pushed my cousin from room to room, deciding what he would steal.
