Kabanshi calls for strengthening community based rehabilitation

General News Kabanshi calls for strengthening community based rehabilitation

 

Community Development and Social Welfare Minister has urged Community Based Rehabilitation Organizations (CBRO) to strengthen their service provision to people living with disabilities.

Ms Emerine Kabanshi said this when a Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) team under the African Network (CAN) paid a courtesy call at her office in Lusaka today.

ZANIS reports that Ms Kabanshi said there is an urgent need for smooth service delivery owing  to an increase in people living with disabilities from the recent number of accidents recorded in the country.

She stated that the country also has a number of people in various communities suffering from non-communicable diseases,mental illnesses, and urgently need proper care.

The minister added that in the past the Ministry has been failing to deal with mental patients on the streets because CBR has not been effective in some parts of the country.

Ms Kabanshi said her ministry is looking forward to the 2018 African Community Based Rehabilitation Conference that will be held to  share experiences and to discuss how best to scale up CBR services in communities.

And speaking at the same occasion, CBR Chairman Musonda Siame assured the Minister that the organization will work hard to ensure that service delivery to people living with disabilities is strengthened.

Mr. Musonda said CBR was striving to spread its community based services in line with the aspirations of African Networks activities in communities across the region.

    • PF will talk without action. What is PF doing about this problem? How much money is PF putting towards solving this problem? Why expect societies to sort out their own problems when there is an “elected” government milking taxes from everyone?
