Children with epilepsy possess unique requirements and encounter distinctive obstacles. Ensuring access to care is not only a fundamental right for every child with epilepsy but should also encompass availability to healthcare providers capable of delivering appropriate epilepsy management.
Our sustainable and eco-friendly social enterprise is dedicated to using recycled materials, such as paper and plastic, for our craftwork. Additionally, we utilize biodegradable sheep wool, ensuring a minimal environmental footprint. In addition to providing economic opportunities, we also prioritize environmental education. Through our project, we teach our patients about the significance of caring for our environment. Together, we strive to create a positive impact on both livelihoods and the world we live in.
Integrating epilepsy management into primary healthcare is crucial to reduce the treatment gap. Effective training programs for nonspecialist healthcare providers are essential in achieving this goal.
Donate to support our mission of raising awareness about epilepsy and its cultural, social, and economic impact. By doing so, you can contribute to enhancing the quality of life for our patients and improving their psychosocial health outcomes. Join us in making a difference in the lives of those affected by epilepsy.
Tigist says "I was diagnosed with epilepsy at 14, after a long struggle to get a proper diagnosis. My parents were afraid of the stigma and wanted to hide my condition, leaving me feeling lonely and misunderstood. Then I found CareEpilepsy Ethiopia, and they changed everything. They opened doors for me to enjoy life and pursue work, becoming my chosen family. Thank you for being there and showing me that I'm not alone in this journey."Tigist: Patient
As a mother of a child with epilepsy, my life revolves around his needs. Every thought and action is dedicated to his wellbeing. When access to quality epilepsy services is limited, it hinders my child's ability to reach his full potential due to frequent seizures. That's why I've become a passionate advocate for epilepsy through my involvement with CareEpilepsy Ethiopia. It is my mission to fight for better support and services for individuals with epilepsy, ensuring that no child's potential is hindered by this condition.Yetnebersh: Mother of a son with epilepsy

Eyerus said, "At first I went into denial: my son seemed so perfect, he glowed with good health, was energetic and happy. Then he started having seizures and the seizures began increasing in frequency and I went into a panic. It was too much to deal with the stigma that I faced becuase of my child having epilepsy. I was in such a state of anxiety and it was impossible to find any information about epiepsy." Thank you CareEpilepsy for making it easy for me to understand epilepsy and to know that my child is not possessed by evil spirit. You have supported me in the last five years and walked the talk with me."Eyerus: Mother of a child with epilepsy
