Zaina Almesfer

20-year-old Zaina Almesfer from Whitford, Auckland lives with Angelman Syndrome, a non-progressive neurogenic disorder that affects her intellectual ability, speech, movement and balance.

Zaina’s family received $7,213 to purchase a two-person trike, enabling her to explore the local community safely with her parents.

The new two-person trike will be extremely beneficial to Zaina’s development, not only keeping her engaged and helping to improve her ability to maintain sitting but also allowing her to socialise and engage with her local community and her family.
