“Hope itself is a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords; but, like all other pleasures immoderately enjoyed, the excesses of hope must be expiated by pain.” -Samuel Johnson
“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself.” ― C. JoyBell C.
"Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He's sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped." - Charles Stanley
is to capacitate people living with epilepsy to overcome the many challenges that they encounter by ensuring that they secure diagnosis, medical treatment and rehabilitation, social assistance and care, education and training among other things.
Most people do not know the true facts about epilepsy and so they do not seek or promote medical treatment. Therefore, education and awareness programmes are targeted at families, PLWE, teachers, employers, government and the public. When people know the facts about epilepsy, PLWE will find a supportive environment to rehabilitate them and become productive and valuable citizens for socio-economic development. Some of the campaigns include the commemoration of the national epilepsy awareness week, public education, and production of materials and publications to raise awareness and media coverage. We have a library with epilepsy resources (books, magazines, cds and cassettes) and health workers can borrow material or request more pamphlets, fliers and posters.
