The foundation was set up by Mr and Mrs Lekhele following the birth of their son Oarabetse.
The Foundation was set up to: advocate for rights of children with cerebral palsy, share information on cerebral palsy, create awareness and education society at large, train parents and caregivers, provide psychosocial support to families of children living with cerebral palsy, educate the families about the condition and also advise on lifestyle management.
Their work includes organising fun days for children living with the condition, providing much needed food parcels, basic clothing such as nappies. They also provide mobility equipment such as wheelchairs, standing frames, assist children and parents with transport needs. Often, we read horrific stories of child neglect especially when the child has some form of illness or disability. Oarabetse Foundation approached Interstate Bus Lines to assist to enable it to carry out some of its work. A Mother’s Day celebration event was organised on 10 May 2019 to celebrate mothers of children living with cerebral palsy. Through this event, mothers were pampered with gifts and entertained.
