GND – Sponsors Plea by Rehab Centre

A REHABILITATION centre for children with neuromuscular disorders and traumatic brain injuries is appealing to sponsors to help expand its services.

The Steps Rehabilitation Centre, Seef, was opened by Bahraini Fawsia Abdulkaliq in 2007 after she found it difficult to get the right kind of treatment for her son, Abdulla, who has the debilitating condition cerebral palsy.

After travelling to America, she discovered the ‘therasuit method’ of treatment, which involves patients wearing a suit which eases their body into the correct posture so they can perform rehabilitation exercises.
