Our History

Enriching lives with CP for 54 years

Having started with only 8 children in a borrowed premise at the Jubilee Home, today the Association has its own premise and caters to the special needs of 130 children and young adults challenged with Cerebral Palsy (CP). The Association takes pride in being a leading service provider in the state of Johor, offering professional integrated programs and services for these special children.

The Spastic Children's Association of Johor was formed in 1967.

Our Founder's Story

One man’s vision, mission and dedication led to the birth of Johor Cerebral Palsy Association. Datuk Dr. Samuel Clifford Ethermanasingam Abraham (Datuk Dr. S.C.E. Abraham) had the foresight to provide education and services to children and young adults with cerebral palsy. 

Datuk Dr. S.C.E. Abraham was a committed social activist all his life, and one of the hallmarks of his career and his life was the additional work he conducted in parallel with his pediatric duties.

After considerable fundraising efforts, his vision became a reality with the opening of Johor Cerebral Palsy Association in 1967.

Over the years, the association has been championed and supported by a stellar list of leaders, organisations, and corporate entities, growing from strength to strength.
