As a registered NPO The Quad Para Association is almost entirely dependent on public funding and donors to ensure it’s continued existence as well as to empower people with disabilities in the broader Eastern Cape region for a better tomorrow. The Quad Para Association is also involved in various other projects like hospital visits to people with spinal cord injuries in public hospitals as well as Buckle Up where we aim to create awareness to motorists regarding road safety over the Easter and December Holiday Period but without support from the public none of this would be possible.
The nature of The QuadPara Association Of The Eastern Cape can be described as Follows:
As one of the main projects of The QuadPara Association of the Eastern Cape is Quad House Port Elizabeth, which is a residential facility situated in Newton Park Port Elizabeth and provides accommodation to people living with Disabilities namely Quadriplegics and Paraplegics.
