Result / Achieved during reporting period 
17 Wheelchairs have been sourced and provided to children. Funding of R 15 000 per month has been obtained and a therapist has been providing services to the children on a daily basis. Designs for the playpark have been completed. 

Challenges experienced and how they were mitigated 
A flood damaged the centre and adversely affected children and their care. SPF procured 3 donated water tanks to absorb and store roof rainwater run-off and provide water storage. A ramp that was to access an open area was not built due to the need for plumbing repairs. This will be completed in January 2019. 

Plans for next month 
Obtain quotes for playpark construction and implement in 2019.
