70 - Lee Haskin on Supporting Caregivers of Children with Disabilities in Mitche

In this episode I chat with Lee Haskin, founder of Connor’s Haven in Mitchel’s Plain, Cape Town.

When learning that her newborn baby was disabled, Lee made a commitment to providing the care her child would need. This led to the founding of Connor’s Haven and Resource Centre, which has become a centre of support and resources for parents and caregivers of children with disabilities in an area that is significantly under-resourced, with limited support facilities.

Lee shares the story of her life with a child with a disability, the founding of Connor’s Haven and a recent court case after Connor was refused entry into a local shop.
