Who we support
The IHC Foundation funds a wide range of projects that benefit people with intellectual disability and their families. Here are just a few of the stories.
Fragile X school workshops send a positive message that people with the condition can achieve if they are given the right support and opportunities.
The artists’ faces were everywhere – in photographs, in painted portraits and in amazing combinations of the two. And in front of the portraits were the artists themselves proudly exhibiting their work to the public – joyful and confident.
No one understands what it’s like to raise a child with an intellectual disability better than other families struggling with the same issues. Intellectual disabilities, such as William syndrome, aren’t always well understood at the local medical centre and it’s often other parents who can throw the lifebelt at the right time.
Since 2012 the IHC Foundation has contributed funds towards the Rett New Zealand Trust’s biennial conferences, which regularly feature American Rett education specialist Susan Norwell along with local medical specialists.
