The meeting which was well attended had in attendance some representative families from recently established Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex support group. Families in attendance shared lots of experience and made new friends.

The high point of the meeting was the presentation by Dr Adebayo Shehu – the Co-Founder/ Director General of Human & Organizational Resources Development Centre & board member, Lagos State Office of Disability Affairs on how parents can become advocates for their child’s rights. Children with Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus had lots of fun with games.
