Viljoen Family

Hannes and Jana Viljoen are a South African couple who have four children and three of them have brain-injury.

Kyna (13 years old) is their eldest daughter who suffered a pediatric stroke and partial paralysis at the tender age of 13 months. Gian (age 12) has Down Syndrome. Leo (age11) is on the Autism spectrum. Abigale is a well 10-year-old girl.

The Viljoens are currently residing in the United States and had a miraculous journey with their own children who reached milestones they were never expected to reach. The couple couldn't deny the undeniable call upon their hearts to bring this HOPE to other special needs families and founded BRAIN CHILD FUND.

Brain Child Fund then partnered with Family Hope Center in the USA to bring HOPE to other South African special needs families.

The next Parent Training Conference (PTC) will be presented in 15-17 February 2019 at Roodevalley Fair City Hotel in Pretoria, South Africa. Click here for more info.
