With the resources received during this period, Fisulab has been able to continue priorizing the treatment for the 5 selected children during three more months.  

Two of them have been continuously working during the former period: Juan David, has continued to attend on regular basis to his dentistry controls and speech therapies obtaining great advances in his language despite it is only once-a-month, because his home is very far from Bogota; also, Juan Sebastian, who already initiated speech therapy on individual basis to strengthen himself. 

Estefany and Cristian have also been attending to speech therapies noticing an improvement in his language; however, Cristian  was practiced a nasopharyngoscopy as well as Juan David in which a speech problem was evidenced to being caused by an organic component, which requires a new surgery for both of them.

The five of them have attended dutifully to their pediatric dentistry controls for the monitoring of their interceptive orthodontics; additionally, Juan David received dental care treatment because he had oral health problems.

During 2013, thanks to you and all our benefactors Fisulab provided treatment to 532 patients throughout the year.

Out of the 16 children who were elected to be supported with donations received through Global Giving, it is worthy to highlight the treatment received by three of them:  Juan David Moreno, a boy who lives 6-hour far from Bogota, has continued to come on monthly basis to receive his speech therapy, psychology and dentistry treatment, obtaining important advances in his speech, teeth health and his school performance.  Laura Gabriela Tenjo has continued to receive speech therapy and dentistry treatment and has atended to psychological sessions for handling of some family conflicts which are affecting her development and  Juan Sebastián Ramírez, who recently celebrated his first birthday, is initiating the second stage of his integral treatment, securing his speech and social emotional development with Fisulab’s professional team support. 

Out of the remaining 13 children, Isabela Mantilla had a very significant oral problem, which was solved with the pediatric dentistry treatment received; the remaining 12 children have continued the proper follow-up to reinitiate during 2014. With the resources received during this period (September – November 2013), complete integral treatment was guaranteed to three children out of the 16 children who initiated with Global Giving support.  If we had included the whole 16 children, we could have only been able to guarantee treatment for two week to each, this would mean till mid-September; that´s why we decided to privilege the more needed ones.

Enclosed you will find some pictures of activities carried out in December, 2013.

The 16 selected children have continued to attend their integral treatment with significant advances. It is worthy to highlight among them, Laura Gabriela Tenjo, one of the girls between 4-7 years-old, and Neitan Segura, a 3-year old boy, who initiated with severe oral health problems, and now they have healthy teeth and good hygiene habits which allow them to keep their teeth without cavities. This also permitted them to initiate with the orthodontic appliances to ease their maxilar expansion and improve their occlusion. Stefany Castillo, a 5-year old girl who used to have serious speech alterations, has significantly improved thanks to speech therapies which she has attended opportunely and an ear surgery which has allowed her a better listening because formerly she used to suffer a chronic otitis.

Juan David Moreno, a 7-year old boy, also came with speech difficulties and has also shown important advances with each of the worked sounds, even though his attendance to the treatment is on once-a-month basis with the specialist and some works that have to be performed at home with her mother due to him living 6-hours far from Bogotá. Also, this progress is the result of a surgery practiced to him to correct the velopharyngeal insufficiency he used to have.

Out of the remaining 12 children, 2 of them who are older than 10 years, where intervened with a surgery during this period and, even though the surgery costs are not covered with GlobalGiving donations, but with resources from other donations, they could be done thanks to the complementary treatments practiced to them to be ready to make them possible successfully. With your donations received during June July and August, Fisulab was able to procure complementary treatment to these 16 children up to August 31st, 2013.
