Sneha Kiran of Mysore Spastic Society, a centre committed towards rehabilitating children and young adults affected with cerebral palsy (CP), has organised a variety entertainment programme at a resort here on December 1 to raise funds for expanding its services.

A fashion show by Needle Works, dance by Beyond Taalas, music by Natashekar and troupe, and a performance by Rock Salad are part of the programme that begins at 7 p.m. at Silent Shores, on the outskirts of the city.

A note issued by Sneha Kiran said cerebral palsy — caused due to brain damage at birth — affects two to three children of every 1,000 born. There are about 2,000 children in and around Mysore affected by it and in need of help and rehabilitation.

Specialised rehabilitation and educational services are provided at Sneha Kiran, which currently takes care of 65 children. The children are picked by from home and dropped after daylong activities at the centre, located at Sharadanagar in Bogadi, the release said. “Services provided by Sneha Kiran are heavily subsidised as families cannot bear the expenses involved,” the release stated.

For donor passes, contact 98440-43965 and 98863-79529.
