About Epilepsy South Africa Educational Trust

The South African Epilepsy Association was established in 1967 as the South African National Epilepsy Alliance (SANEL). It is a non-profit organization and the only national organization in the country that provides comprehensive and professional services to patients with epilepsy and other disabilities.

This organization is dedicated to improving the lives of our target groups and of South Africans with intellectual disabilities, hydrocephalus, and language problems. Epilepsy SA has a national office in Cape Town and 6 other regional branches in other parts of the country.

The organization’s mission is to promote the human rights and society of people with disabilities, especially those with epilepsy.
