The name Kawan literally means 'It is A Baby'. Knowing our culture, the name would easily mean that someone in her family stood bold in the face of God several years ago on November 1st to thank Him and say, yes lord, this is a female child But she is a child, a baby, all the same. Wonder no further, Kawan was the third daughter of her parents...you guessed right. Kawan Aondofa Anjira, nee Girgir has since become a mother of four children. Two, Aondofa and Secivir were born with cerebral Palsy. The least she worried about at this time, would be the gender of the children. Along side her husband, Kawan has since established a home for children born with cerebral Palsy and has continued to rescue them from th cold hands of fettish people, helpless hands of families and loved ones as well as a physiotherapy home to tend to these children. Cerebral palsy is non-life-threatening - With the exception of children born with a severe case, cerebral palsy is considered to be a non-life-threatening condition. Most children with cerebral palsy are expected to live well into adulthood. Though incurable, Cerebral Palsy is Non-Progressive - The brain lesion is the result of a one-time brain injury and will not produce further degeneration of the brain. Cerebral Palsy is Permanent - The injury and damage to the brain is permanent. The brain does not 'heal1 as other parts of the body might. Because of this, the cerebral palsy itself will not change for better or worse during a person's lifetime. On the other hand, associated conditions may improve or worsen overtime. Cerebral Palsy is not Contagious - It is not communicable -mostly, cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the developing brain. However, a person can intentionally or unintentionally increase the likelihood a child will develop cerebral palsy through abuse, accidents, medical malpractice, negligence, or the spread of a bacterial or viral infection. But the good news is Cerebral Palsy is Manageable Having a child with special needs can be taunting enough, and no, God gave gave Kawan two children born with this situation. Her experience led her to establish SECHILD. A home for ceberal Palsy children. She founded this home with support from her husband and siblings and well meaning Nigerians. Today is her birthday and below is her desire, as captured on her Facebook page.
