Little People in Cape Town……

The Excitement is sprouting….. we don’t have an official name but its safe to say that our Little People support group is official, we had our second get together on Saturday and although we are only  7 families we are positive that we are going to grow and grow.

Red Cross Children’s Hospital has given us their support by allowing us to use their facilities for our meetings, they have offered support in the form of Genetic counseling , occupational therapist the use of the play room and boardroom …. (and so much more )

Heather (Danielle’s mom) got in contact with Dr Fieggen of UCT division of human genetics (Dr Fieggen runs the genetic clinic at Red Cross and she is familiar with most of our little ones) and Dr Fieggen expressed how excited she was at our efforts and she has offered to make contact with any new or old parents on her database to inform them of the support group.

We had many areas to discuss at our meeting and we are about to get things going…. so there is lots of work ahead but its all good!!!!!!!!!!!! And im so excited to be part of this vision….

Here are some pictures or our little ones in Cape Town South Africa

  4. Hi
    I found this lovely web page while looking for an association for Little People in Cape Town. I am an author of children’s books and am looking for a contact for a new project with an educational publisher that highlights human rights and other issues. I would like to showcase a child with achondroplasia in a new title. Please look at my website http://www.revivaschermbrucker.co.za to see my track record in the field, Under Published Titles, NOBODY’S DOLL, which highlights a child with albinism, is of especial relevance. Please contact me urgently at 021 6716785 or vivic@telkomsa.net to discuss.
    Thank you Reviva Schermbrucker
