Creating bubbles within your bubbles.
This is the catch phrase delivered by the Cerebral Palsy Youth Alliance today with the launch of creative content, which was filmed, edited and distributed by individuals with cerebral palsy.
The two-minute video showcases several Youth Alliance members dancing and washing their hands, joining a long list of content with the intentions of encouraging everyone to continue washing their hands under the Ministry of Health’s guidelines.

The guidelines distributed by the MOH include:
