It’s a really important time of year for our Disabilities and Rehabilitation clients as the specialist orthopaedic team visit our area to carry out assessments.
The visit on Monday saw four clients scheduled to visit 500 Miles in June for equipment including three needing an ankle-foot orthosis. A further five clients were referred to Nkhata Bay Hospital yesterday for surgeries including club foot and bow leg operations.
Alongside the weekly home visits and group sessions that Matilda runs, these clinics are vital. Once the children receive their relevant orthotics and operations, Matilda then works closely with them and their families on the next part of their journey.
