In 2009 the Berlowitz family decided to come live in South Africa withtheir daughter Chanah, now 12 years old, who suffers from cerebral palsey, retardation and quadriplegia. She also suffers with seizures and reflux. Even with all these challenges in Chanah Rivka’s life she is able to wake up with a smile on her face and ‘j ump over’ the hurdles of the day. With the limited resources her family is able to provide, Chanah Rivka’s physical condition is being maintained through the generous volunteers and therapists who are providing assistance to her.
Chazak Foundation saw that Chanah Rivkah was in urgent need for equipment in order to better her therapy so that it could be more productive. A bench was donated on the 20 March 2012. Thank you to Stacey Aires for her generous donation. . . . read more >>
