Disabled children in Moldova are kept home, isolated with limited access to healthcare, medication and other needed therapies. They become insecure, develop secondary disabilities, lose their independence, which further worsens the possibility of integration. Our facility does not have inside bathrooms and disabled children have to go (or being carried) outside to an outhouse, 150 meters away. It discourages parents from bringing children to our center and in turn, they keep them home.
All donations will serve to build a bathroom in our facility. Disabled children will benefit from a sanitation facility with ramps, wider doors, extra room inside stalls for a wheelchair and special seats. They will enjoy a safer and healthier environment when they come to the center and enjoy a bathroom that is accessible, private, secure. Additionally, more parents will be encouraged to bring their children to participate in our activities enabling better development for them.
An improved facility will have a huge impact of the morale, health and development of disabled children from Gratiesti. This renovation will create favorable conditions for the disabled children and their families where they will have access to much needed therapy, efficient recovery and treatment methods appropriate for the disabled, training, counseling, advocating. Children will also receive socio-medical support and assistance, training and education.
