The Hollywood Foundation brought relief to The Association for the Sensory Disabled (ASD) this October as part of its various CSI initiatives. The Purple Team in Worcester contributed a printer, a fridge, a turbo gas and white paint to help with the running of the organisation.
Established in 2003 in the heart of the Breede Valley in the Western Cape, The Association for the Sensory Disabled aims to provide an accessible, sustainable, integrated day-care, after-care and 24-hour residential care services, in partnership with the community and well-trained staff, to allow children with sensory disabilities to reach their full potential, and in so doing, support their families.
Their goal is making a sustainable difference in the lives of children with sensory disabilities, in partnership with the community. As part of the Foundation’s mandate of giving back to the community through its various CSI projects, the Team visited the centre to hand over the contribution.
Nicolette Labuschagne, the Manager at The Association for the Sensory Disabled said that the organisation has programmes that are based on two aspirations which is to foster empathy, compassion, and dignity within a safe, caring environment and to “get a life” rather than just “get an education. ”She said that their key objective is to offer a caring environment where empathy, compassion, and dignity abound and where, as a consequence, children with disabilities can experience a complete, fulfilled lifespan.
