The Chariots of Destiny Organization (COD) partnered with HP East Africa to launch a project called "Bags of a New Destiny"(BAND).This first of its kind project aims to provide education and information to persons living with a spinal cord injury so as to enable them to live a productive life post-injury.
When somebody sustains a spinal cord injury (SCI), they will need anything from three months to a couple of years of rehabilitation in a hospital before they are ready to go back into normal life. This rehabilitation will teach the person how to manage the physical aspects of their disability, such as bladder and bowel function, use of a wheelchair and other assistive devices, and pressure care, as well as giving them resources to address issues such as independent living and employment. As a developing country, Kenya does not have
the resources necessary to provide a high level of rehabilitation in government hospitals. COD has a role to play in improving the quality of the care offered in government hospitals and in providing resources to both the patients and the caregivers involved in the rehabilitation process.
