Before the Reya Gona Center was opened, there were no care facilities for disabled children. Once children were too big to be carried, they had to be locked at home whenever both parents had to leave. So the children received no socialization, no education, and no physical therapy. Reya Gona offers education and stimulation for physically disabled children during the day. In addition, therapists from the local hospital volunteer their time to visit the center to train the parents in how to give the physical therapy that their children need. When a child is ill doctors are available by Skype to diagnose and treat the ailments.

A group of students from California, along with Brenda Birrell, went to Johannesburg to help with the construction of the center. Below you will see photos as the work was done and the center was opened.
