A Guide for community health workers, rehabilitation workers, and families
Peter Limbrick writes: This is book is a rich store of ingenuity, creativity, care and compassion. It is in the spirit of caring activism in that it suggests how to help disabled village children when no help is available from anywhere else. The resources for this come from disabled children, their families and communities.
In my view, the book has relevance in:
countries where children have been damaged by war
countries such as the UK where austerity leaves thousands of families in poverty with unmet needs
There are three Parts:
Working with the child and family
Working with the community
Working in the shop (This features a shop for making aids run by disabled villagers)
In the spirit of this book, find a few people to share the cost with you and then keep it as a shared resource.
