Challenge

The crisis in the Colombian Health Social Security System, has impact on vulnerable people who despite being affiliated in a health regime is victim of a system with structural faults; unresponsive effective way to their vital needs. Thats why we seek to benefit children and youth diagnosed with Down syndrome and cerebral palsy requiring rehabilitation and also help their families to overcome the lack of ability to pay for specialized care that improves their quality of life.

Solution

It seeks to facilitate access to rehabilitation processes that are timely with quality and consistent with their particular needs, allowing their development through therapeutic processes that generate skills and abilities to reach their full potential. Support for this initiative aims to impact the development of each of them so they can acquire knowledge and procedures that enable them full integration into the community in which they live, achieving their autonomy and independence.

Long-Term Impact

The project will directly benefit children and teenagers and indirectly their families, as it will allow them to develop skills for learning (attention, perception, understanding) and social development (autonomy, identity, managing emotions, expressive skills). We will provide the means and resources needed to achieve adequate development, while promoting family and social integration, seeking to achieve the maximum degree of autonomy and independence.
