Impact COVID19

This time our report is a bit different, because our community work has come to a halt and both our workers and our families are sitting at home riding out this period of world health crisis.

As we are working with the poorest families in the Santiago Province, many do not even have a smart phone, so working by using a camera is not an option for our work.  We just hope that the parents will continue to apply the principles of how to treat their children to bring out the best in them, also in this situation and to continue to challenge them gently in their development. 

We pray that their situation will not be affected too much by the situation and that they will be able to profit from the different actions from the Dominican government to supply special credit for essentials and food to the most vulnerable!

One more way our project has been affected is by the cancelling of the visits of end of term Physical Therapy students with a accompanying professional over the spring break.   They help us to get an annual evaluation of the children and adolescents and leave a written program that our workers follow, matching it up with milestones from the Portage method and other non-motor developmental areas to be stimulated, like language, social, self-help and cognitive development.

In this report I present you Breiny and Ruddy and their mothers . They live in an area about 3 hours travel away from the central office.  These two families came in for the annual evaluation of the annual visit of end of term Occupational Therapy students and professional in January leaving the same kind of help as mentioned for the PT students.

As they live so far away one of our workers visited them once every two weeks (until further notice right now) as it  takes her a whole day for these visits, leaving them a program for two weeks to follow.

The families are very grateful and both Breiny and Ruddy have shown quite a bit of improvement, not the least being more obedient, paying more attention and thus learning more skills that will help them hopefully to get into the local school.  We would have to go and investigate how this would be possible, but both boys have the potential, despite their Cerebral Palsy that mainly affect their movements.

We thank you for your support to our work and the families with the children and adolescents that live with disabilities.

We also hope that your own situation has not been adversely affected by this crisis and wish you and your family will continue to be safe and healthy!

May we all rely on our loving and gracious Lord and Father who is in control and does not want any of us to perish, but have eternal life!
