Quasar Trust is a service provider that provides 24 hour nursing care and accommodation to Quadriplegics.
A quadriplegic is a person who, through disease or accident, has lost total or partial use of his limbs. The major cause if this disability is accident. The groups of people typically affected are the young and active.
When someone has lost the use of his limbs, it does not mean that he has lost his spirit of independence.
Quasar and 6 radiographic students from Groote Schuur Hospital Campus carried out a community outreach project whereby we set up a reception area with a computer for the Chesire Home for disables people in Langa.
We hope to send some of the residents of Langa Chesire Home to do a computer training course, thus empowering them to become computer literate with the possibility of finding employment.
