In May of 2009, WFCF approved the funding of $1,700 to the Amani Children’s Foundation (ACF) for the purpose of purchasing a pony walker for children with cerebral palsy (the “Walker”). The Amani Children’s Foundation provides funding for four homes across Kenya that take in babies between birth and three months of age that have been left in awful and unwelcoming conditions. By the age of two, nearly all of the children are adopted to a loving Kenyan family.
Pony walkers support disabled children to stand vertically and maintain their balance. The wide base makes the pony walker a very stable system for children who need maximal support to begin walking and gait training.
