INSTRUMENTS NEEDED (article first published : 2001-12-18)

The Association for the Physically Challenged (APC) is a non-profit organisation that aims to meet the needs of physically challenged persons through the provision of various services that promote independence and rehabilitation. The focus of our work is on empowering physically disabled persons, their families and communities.

At the Pietermaritzburg branch of the Association is a residential home for physically disabled persons. Recently, 14 of the men in the home have been expressing a keen interest in learning to play various musical instruments. They have mentioned the guitar, drums and keyboard. They have identified a music teacher who will be able to come in twice a week to teach them to play.

They are very eager to learn and this would provide an activity that is both enjoyable and rehabilitative. The problem is that they have no musical instruments and little hope of acquiring these items because of their individual financial situations. These members would appreciate any advice or assistance in acquiring some musical instruments.

Please contact the administrator, Radha Maharaj at the John Odams Residential Home on 033 342 2768 or myself on 031 208 6156 for further information.

Yours sincerely, Penny Biccard. PRO/ Fundraiser. Association for the Physically Challenged. Registered welfare organisation number: 002-195 NPO
