Experts believe that at least 1-2% of children born in Bangladesh are born with Cerebral Palsy, an ailment which is linked to the baby being deprived of oxygen during birth. Researchers have noted that 78% of the births in Bangladesh are at home, where people do not have easy access to medical professionals in the case of a complication.
The Center for the Rehabilitation of the Paralyzed in Bangladesh is teaching parents of children with Cerebral Palsy certain management techniques that can help their children. The courses last for 2 weeks, and the Center admits 80 mothers and their children per month.
Unfortunately, Cerebral Palsy is impossible to cure or even treat, but people can manage the disorder, especially if it is diagnosed early. Many children, however, go undiagnosed until they are older because mothers are stigmatized for having disabled children and hide their children’s disabilities instead of bringing them to the hospital. The Center has begun to reach out into communities to help these children.
