CCBRT, a Tanzanian non-CCBRT is the largest indigenous provider of disability and rehabilitation services in the country, providing quality rehabilitative services to 120,000 people with disabilities and their caregivers each year. This includes persons with:
* Physical impairments (cerebral palsy, congenital deformities such as clubfoot, cleft lip/palate)
* Visual impairments
* Hearing impairments
* Intellectual impairments
* Obstetric fistulagovernmental organisation, was established in 1994 in response to the needs of people with disabilities in and around Dar es Salaam and the lack of accessible services to them. CCBRT has grown rapidly into a large and comprehensive rehabilitation programme.
Using Vodafone’s M-Pesa service, the clinic can send transport grants directly to patients to cover the average USD 60 cost of a round-trip from rural Tanzania. In a country where many live on USD 2 per day, the financial assistance they receive is crucial in allowing treatment, and has seen a surge in operations at the clinic.
