There are a lot of people living with epilepsy who are neglected, discriminated against, and left out in society. Many people are afraid of epileptic people and often run away when the person is having a seizure instead of helping.

They don’t know how to help or how to react, leaving the patient unattended to and alone until they come back to normal which is dangerous for the patient. These people are traumatized mentally and hurt physically. They also don’t feel loved and cared for therefore they tend to be aggressive due to mental torture that happens during the seizures.

There are just a few organizations that tend to epileptic people hence the Ipalo Foundation coming in to help these people with medical supplies, mental help support and make them feel loved and cared for and part of the communities they live in.  We also sensitize families and communities on the importance of being there for epileptic people especially during and after a seizure.

Widows/Widower’s Empowerment

Widowers are the most neglected in society too, many believe that men are strong and can go on with life after losing their spouses just like that, but that’s not true.

The program also supports young widows who depended on their deceased partners. We empower them with tailoring and entrepreneurship skills to become self-sufficient that way they will be able to take care of themselves and their children. The ones in the Ipalo tailoring center produce goods which are sold worldwide, and the returns goes back to them at the widow’s center.

Children need good nutrition to grow and develop to their full potential and good nutrition is also involved in the prevention of many childhood diseasesPoor nutrition has been shown to restrict brain development and IQ levels in many children, therefore caregivers are encouraged to feed the right meals and respond to the child’s hunger signals.  

 

Adequate nutrition during infancy and early childhood is essential because good diet and nutrition are key factors in the health and growth of a child. Everything  from basic brain function to behavioral pattern can be influenced by the diet the child eats. A child’s brain develops rapidly henceforth, the need of a nutrient dense diet. Many children’s needs in the early years can be very challenging and many parents face barriers to securing enough nutritious, safe, affordable and age appropriate food for their children. These challenges are even greater during conflicts, disasters and other humanitarian crises. Improving the quality of food and feeding practices in the earliest years of life is the cornerstone of preventing malnutrition in all it’s forms.
