Exciting opportunity for rehab patients is coming

By Tim Holmes | Fundraising Coordinator

We are regularly introducing new ways to treat the physical aspects of spinal cord injury and stroke patients. With on-site x-ray and orthopaedic surgery now available, the medical outcomes are improving all the time. However one of the biggest challenges has always been to rehabilitate patients back into work. Despite several success stories, the reality is that the opportunities for those with disabilities in Haiti to get jobs are extremely limited.

So we’re delighted to announce that thanks to our partner charity in Switzerland, Verein Haiti Rehab Schweiz, a new project to build and run a bakery and cafe in Cap-Haitien is underway. This project aims to provide a place of work for patients leaving our Rehabilitation Unit. Whether through work experience and skill development, or through providing permanent employment, the new business venture will be a unique resource in aiding full rehabilitation of patients. 

Alongside the vocational benefits, this venture will showcase to the wider community what disabled people can do with the right support. We hope it will challenge further the stigma around disability that remains in Haiti and help more people with disabilities to be included in their communities.

Profits from the business will be put back into other disability projects in and around the hospital. In recent years Verein Haiti Rehab Schweiz has also been able to fund a new accessible toilet and shower block at the hospital and also repairs to the rehab unit’s roof. We’re so grateful to them for committing to another incredibly valuable project which will benefit current and future rehabiliation patients for years to come. 

We’ll tell you more about this project as it develops. Thank you so much for your support.
