Sherwood Park Special Care Centre will be hosting a Variety Show on the 12 May 2012.  Anwah Abrahams from ‘The Boyz’ initiated this fundraiser. As they like to give back to their community.  Anwah has rallied local artist like, Mr. Personality, Protégé, Neesha Abrahams, EMO V, Toyer Abrahams, Harmony Voices, Iqraam Cupido & many more to take part in this initiative “We Care” to raise funds for Sherwood Park.

This SPECIAL CARE Centre was founded in 1984 to address the seriously overlooked need of providing a stimulating environment for the profoundly mentally challenged children in our community.  SPECIAL CARE children normally need very intensive special care and their educational process is highly specialised.

The past twenty-eight years has seen this Centre grow subject to the support of the community and the manifest priority this type of institution receive from the authorities as well as from general community. When direct dealings with these children and their institutions are experienced, the compassionate strings in every heart are certainly stirred. Everybody realise their great blessings when you see these children and they all feel they must do something to help. Unfortunately, this conscience and awareness is very short lived if you lose contact with these children and their institutions. 

The above is in most cases the reason why SPECIAL CARE and other similar institutions experience an uphill battle to finance this costly type of education. We are therefore compelled to run very exhaustive fundraising projects as well as collection and appeal drives on a continuous basis. If you are serving the economically underprivileged, your funding task becomes many times more challenging.

In spite of the constraints and challenges, this SPECIAL CARE CENTRE has managed to acquire and adapt its own premises and vehicles to supply a consistent and unfailing service to the community for the past twenty-eight years. This is a testimony to the commitment of the institution, its organisers and supporters thus far.

The need for funding at the Centre is enormous as it is supplying a service largely to economically deprived community. Sometimes these families must survive on the grants of the children. We are always in search of businesses, corporations and individuals who can help to sustain this invaluable service in the community.

In addition, thanks to Anwah & the commitment of ‘The Boyz’ in assisting with fundraising events in support of mentally challenged children. Tickets are still available @ R80, Venue: The Joseph Stone Theatre in Athlone.
