An NPO is raising funds for nine-year-old Cellan Novello who suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Novello’s condition renders him wheelchair-bound and he is in desperate need of a motorised wheelchair for him to move around and enjoy a high quality of life.
His parents have arranged various fundraisers and Incredible Kids of South Africa has jumped in to assist the family.
The money raised will be used to procure a wheelchair and help the family with Novello’s medical expenses.
Incredible Kids of South Africa aims to bring warmth and comfort to the orphaned children of South Africa.
Founded in 2019, the NPO supports local safe houses and assists children where they can with soft skills development.
They also have a sewing club and provide free online art lessons aimed at children.
The NPO’s ambitions go far beyond making only a difference in South Africa, as they plan to expand their operations and open a branch in Ethiopia.
“Super Incredible Kids of South Africa will be developing into North Africa soon.
“With this being said we want to thank everyone who made a difference, especially our neighbour Cindy for gathering items for the safe houses and Marcelle who managed the Christmas tree project.
“We are in discussions to establish a Super Incredible Kids of Midstream, but it will not be exclusive to specifically anyone. Anyone can do good works,” read a statement on their website.
