|THE STROKE AID SOCIETY IS NEITHER A REHABILITATION NOR A RESIDENTIAL FACILITY.|
We are a SUPPORT GROUP which was founded in 1984, in order to provide help to those people who have survived a Stroke, as well as help for their families.
We run weekly groups at our 3 Centres, providing psychosocial support, with a focus on life participation. As we are a Charity, we are unable to provide financial support.
|We are a Non-Profit Organisation.|
Stroke Aid is supported by the National Lotteries Commission of South Africa.
We also rely on public donations, fundraising and receiving money from those members who are able to pay their fees.
Donations can be made by EFT:
