At the moment, there’s a place in Wasi Esperanza called Day-Care Center. This place is like a day nursery room in which 6 or 7 children are looked after by members of the organization. Before being admitted into the center, all the children are evaluated by a social worker. This test allows us to know their economic and social background and subsequently if they should or should not be in the center.Center staff members provide the children physical and psychological therapies. They also feed them and bathe them since their parents are normally at work all day long. In the center, there are children with Down syndrome, total body paralysis, autism and other disorders.
Some months later, Ariana began to have some improvements. She could keep her gaze fixed on some objects and she had started to crawl around. By the end of 2018, the Snoezelen area was open, a Sensory Stimulation Room. This place was decorated with bright colors, materials of different textures, relaxing sounds and other stimulating elements for the 5 senses. It is currently the Ariana's favorite place. She can stay for hours in this room. She likes to admire the colors and lie on the carpet. Another important improvement that happened at the beginning of 2018 is that Ariana was able for the first time to stand up about 10 seconds with the help of a support. These are very significant improvements for Ariana. She is a good evolution and she is very enthusiastic about it.
Ariana is one of the most appreciated children in the center. She moves around with a contagious smile, she likes music and when there is someone who comes to play the guitar she listens carefully and smiles
We hope to keep on accompanying her for some other achievements in the future, such as being stand up a bit longer and even give a few steps with a walker. Thank you for keeping the support. Like Ariana, we have other children who need you.
