Programs

SBFV offers various programs for members with spina bifida to improve fitness, mobility, independence and well-being:

Family Camp

SBFV organises fun-filled camps for families who have children living with spina bifida. The annual summer camps have been a great success in providing parents with affordable respite opportunities and a chance to share stories, experiences and insights of raising children with spina bifida. Importantly the camps increase social interaction for the children and their siblings, significantly improving self-esteem and developing independence.
