Rehabilitation for burn survivors in Taiwan

Nov 8, 2013

Rehabilitation is hard but please don't give up

For 17 years, Fong-Yi has been working at the Rehabilitation Center of Sunshine Foundation, offering crucial rehabilitation services to burn survivors. No one knows better than her the challenges and the pain that burn survivors must go through during the rehabilitation phase. But she also knows that although it seems like the pain will never end, eventually things will get better and easier. As a therapist, her work not only consists of helping burn survivors recover their physical functions, but also of encouraging them and giving them emotional support.

Not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel is the hardest part of rehabilitation.
But no matter what, never give up on yourself!

This is the message that Sunshine Foundation's most senior therapist wants to convey to burn survivors going through the difficult process of rehabilitation...

See how our therapists support burn survivors through this difficult process.

Your support gives burn survivors the strength to go on and makes it possible for our therapists to accompany them in the process. Thank you!
