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.
