Fair Go For Kids is an initiative taken by the Leap Frog Ability that is aimed at providing medical assessment, treatment, therapy and equipment to disadvantaged or disabled children who are on government waiting lists for years. Many children have acute medical needs and significant disabilities which require urgent care and attention. Most of the time there are no community or other resources available to look after the needs of these individuals. The government and community have limited resources available due to which many children have to wait for up to two years in waiting lists with no assistance of any sort. This causes further deterioration of their condition and in turn affects their development. Fair Go For Kids is thus an attempt to provide these children an opportunity for medical assessment.
