Family Stories

Our parents share their heartfelt stories about their children  across the Western Cape who are unlikely to reach adulthood, or ever be able to live life unassisted. Families caring for these children – often 24 hours a day, seven days a week – are under enormous emotional, physical and financial strain. These are ordinary people leading extraordinary lives.
