Dien Ban District has over 1,000 children with disabilities and special needs. Cerebral Palsy is one of the most prevalent conditions; others include Down’s syndrome, autism and intellectual impairment. There are barely any support services available.

The consequences of these disabilities can be catastrophic to individuals and their whole families. For more information, please visit our Cerebral Palsy FAQs.
