WFCF is pleased to announce the funding of equipment and medical supplies in the amount of $6,564 for the Center of Mobility and Stimulation of Children with Disabilities (CESEH) in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The project is managed and coordinated by the International Catholic Child Bureau (BICE) in Brussels, Belgium. BICE’s mission is to provide integral development for children in Africa by promoting children’s dignity and enforcing their rights that are so often violated.
The local partner is the NGO organization: Dignity and Rights for Children in Ivory Coast (DDE-CI). DDE-CI aims to mobilize civil society and influence in social policies in the best interest of the children in Ivory Coast. It is a national organization serving all children, especially the most vulnerable ones. It defends the interests and dignity of children, with emphasis on education, family environment, sense of responsibility, self-confidence, spiritual development, and individual rights. The objective of the project is to properly equip the CESEH facility with mobility devices and to provide specific drugs in order to improve the quality of life of children living with disabilities. The expected result is to improve the well-being of 110 children living with disabilities hosted in the center.
