Special needs children from Cape Mental Health's Imizamo Yethu Special Care Center play with kites in Khayelitsha, Cape Town on Thursday. As part of the Cape Town International Kite festival being held this week, professional kiters from Germany, the United Kingdom and South Africa arranged a preview for the mentally disabled children. Integration and inclusion of people with intellectual and psychiatric disabilities is a key component of the work done by the Cape Mental Health society, which sponsors the biggest kite festival in Africa.
