Many reasons to be proud
Dear Donor, please receive a warm greeting. We are writing to express our deepest thanks for your donation, contributions from donors like you provide the financial and moral support needed to accomplish our mission of providing a quality health center to the disabled children of the deprived communities of the La Altagracia province.
During its first phase, the center is offering specialized medical services to boys and girls from 0 to 12 years old diagnosed with down syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy. In the second phase we hope to offer medical services for children with learning disability.
Significant achievements: Since its opening in March 2, 2020 the center has served more than 2,400 patients ! The most common health conditions are autism, physical disability, language and learning disorders
Without your help this would not have been possible.
This center has changed the lives of many families, whose children with disabilities were not receiving any medical treatment because there was no health center of this type in the entire region.
Given that the pandemic is under control in the DR, all the services remain available, but still complying with the health and safety protocols to prevent covid-19 contagious.
Services available from 8 am. at 4 pm. from Monday to Friday:
- Social work.
- Pediatrics and Nutrition
- Psychological evaluations (over 5 years old).
- Early Care Assessment (under 5 years old)
- Psychometric test.
- Family therapy
- Group Therapy.
- Behavioral Therapy.
- Early Care Therapy.
- Speech therapy
There are still many needs to meet in terms of equipment (for example video-electroencephalogram, electric treadmill), staff training and supplies. We look forward to continue partnering with you in order to get these goals together
We will keep you informed about the progress of the project. If you have any comment, advice or question, please feel free to direct them to us and we will answer as best we can.
There is no way to fully express our gratitude for your support
