"The St. Julie Programme, a non-profit organization run by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in collaboration with parents of special needs children and the local community, seeks to improve the quality of life for children who are physically and/or mentally disabled. We provide opportunities for children to maintain their present abilities and to advance toward their fullest potential as individuals and as members of their families and communities.
We serve children with many disabilities including club foot, cleft palette, cerebral palsy, paralysis, hydrocephalus, spina bifida, epilepsy, mental retardation, blindness, and hearing impairments.
