Around 30 special children of the Cerebral Palsy unit participated in the workshop and experimented with various colours and textures on canvas
Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], February 27: In an initiative to foster creativity in the specially-abled children, an art workshop was organised for children of the Cerebral Palsy unit at Health & Care Foundation (formerly known as Polio Foundation) by Colorplay Team on 24th Feb 2023. Around 30 special children of the Cerebral Palsy unit participated in the workshop, enjoyed the session and experimented with various colours and textures on canvas.
Every child has a creative urge, which needs to be explored and encouraged. So as a part of the developmental therapy of these specially abled children, Colorplay, an art team run by Moumita Gattani, Tribeni Pathak, and Arti Kothari along with their members, conducted the Art Workshop for these special children at Health and Care Foundation. Colorplay engages in organising paint/craft events for all age groups.
Specially abled children were divided into two age groups for the event. Craft activities were also organised to address the motor skills of the children. All the members of Colorplay and the staff of the Health & Care Foundation lent a helping hand to the children.
Health & Care Foundation (formerly known as Polio Foundation) was founded in 1987 to rehabilitate polio-afflicted persons through surgeries. Gradually the trust started working in other healthcare areas for needy people. Today, the hospital actively runs various units for Pediatric Orthopedics, Scoliosis, Screening of breast & Cervical Cancer, Autism, Diabetes, Juvenile diabetes, among many others. The Trust has a special unit for Cerebral Palsy and helps special children.
Cerebral Palsy is a disorder of movement and posture that appears during infancy or early childhood resulting from damage to the brain. Cerebral Palsy is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain that affects a person’s ability to control his or her muscles.
Dr. Bharat Bhagat, Founder and Chairman of the Health & Care Foundation, said, “We want to thank the Colorplay team for organising this wonderful art workshop for the Cerebral Palsy children who need our guidance, love and help along with such recreational activities to raise their growth. They looked very happy throughout the program. Such an initiative aims to foster creativity and celebrates the love and compassion that children are born with.”
On occasion, Colorplay Team said, “Having an event for children with special needs was a heart-touching and unforgettable moment for the COLORPLAY team. This fun-filled event with art and creativity brought a sparkle in the eyes and smiles on the faces of the special children. The team is grateful to Dr Bharat Bhagat, Founder and Chairman of Health and Care Foundation, for giving the opportunity to host this event which uplifted the energy of all. Also, Special thanks to the event supporter – Amiben’s Shree Sava foundation.”
