A partnership between CapeNature and the Warrior on Wheels Foundation is promoting mobility and transforming the lives of children with special needs.
Founded in October 2015, the Warrior on Wheels Foundation is a non-profit organisation (NPO), which began with one woman’s passionate desire to enable her wheelchair-bound, special needs son to live his life to the fullest.
“When doctors informed me that my son Damian is differently able, my world came crashing down, but I knew I had to do something to ensure that his condition wouldn’t hinder his quality of life. I started this foundation to allow my son to be a child like any other, and be able to perform activities that other children are performing too. I didn’t want him to feel less of a human, especially missing out on his childhood,” says Deidré Gower, the foundation’s founder.
