Summary

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many children with disabilities and polydiagnosis have stopped receiving medical care. In Colombia, state resources have been prioritized to face the current health crisis, leaving in second place the needs of medical and specialized care of the population with disabilities or high-cost illnesses. Our Foundation supports this population through specialized consultations, medications, and therapies that helps to improve the physical and mental health of children

Challenge

Many parents have lost their jobs and sources of income. In addition, there are Venezuelan refugee families facing the pandemic in Colombia. Many of our beneficiary children are experiencing multiple changes in their routines and habits and have stopped attending their therapies, consultations, exams, and suspended their medications because of the prevailing need of buying groceries in their homes. Also, sometimes, the state's aid is insufficient to reach the entire population.

Solution

This project seeks to serve 50 boys and girls who need rehabilitation therapies, specialized consultations, diagnostic tests, glasses and prescribed medications. This project supports families that do not have the economic resources to pay for the health care of their sons and daughters. Your donation will help a child with a high cost diagnosis receive specialized, quality and priority medical care.

Long-Term Impact

When a child receives decent, timely and quality health care, risks and health complications are considerably reduced, improving their quality of life and generating a greater impact on their family network and achieving a positive social impact that favors development and harmonic growth of children, creating happy childhoods and healthy adults.
