About Sibongile

In January 2005, founder Nomasango Xabanisa began to take children with cerebral palsy (CP) into her home because she saw a great need for specialised care in her community and because her own daughter, Sibongile, was disabled due to CP. She realized that there was no organisation in the area that took care of these special children and – after receiving training at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital in Cape Town – registered Sibongile Day & Night Care Centre as a non-profit organisation in June 2005.

Sibongile Day & Night Care Centre is a registered non-profit and public beneficiary organization (041-341-NPO and PBO 930 027 189) that aims at providing quality and loving physical, emotional and spiritual care to children with cerebral palsy (CP) and other severe disabilities in the community of Khayelitsha, Cape Town. Sibongile is based on Biblical Christian values.

Our Mission
