Glynne Goldberg Wolman shared a beautiful story about how a dad wants to make a better world for his daughter who has cerebral palsy.
Glynne Goldberg Wolman from the Angel Network had the privilege of meeting 2 remarkable people recently when a cause came to the organisation’s attention.
“Like most fathers, Edward Msimango had dreams beyond his means for his precious little girl who was born cerebral palsy. Raising her as a single dad, he ensured that she received an abundance of loving care and enrolled her Forest Town School.
This year Edward, who has a diploma in both electrical and mechanical engineering, decided to try and arrange a year-end party for 20 CP children who are often neglected and hidden. He wanted them to feel acknowledged, noticed and special. With no idea how to organize such an event, Eddy tried to get sponsorship, relying on the kindness and generosity of strangers.”
Tammy Bass Lewus had a chance meeting at Sunninghill hospital with Eddy which is where he works. She became determined to help Eddy’s dream of throwing a party come true and grew it into a party for 200 CP kids.
The party took place on the 10th of November, at Zoo Lake the Angel Network was able to get happy meals sponsored by McDonald’s as well as tons of volunteers to help in various ways.
The party was a great success and now Eddy’s next dream is to create a more inclusive world for children with cerebral palsy. He hopes to create a non-profit that gets more children into the world instead of being hidden and shunned by their communities.
