Since 2002, the Anugrah program has been effective in operating to meet the needs of special children with mental, intellectual and physical disabilities. Over the years, the program has grown and expanded exponentially in its human capital, partnerships as well as in house and community based services.
The aim of the program is to improve quality of life for people living wit disabilities and to ensure the supportive participation of their families and communities. The programme is currently managed by 28 staff that includes two resident occupational therapists, physiotherapist, part time psychologist, special educator, nine community based resource workers, and a PMR (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation) consultant connected with the hospital.
