Challenge

Currently we do not have the necessary funds to purchase various materials that are necessary to complete the Speech Therapy Service of our Association, which is why we ask the help of all those who are interested in helping our patients to achieve proper conditioning of the service with all the necessary materials for the rehabilitation of children born with Cleft Lip/Palate malformation in Costa Rica.

Solution

Through the funds raised through the project, our Association agrees to make the purchase of all materials listed for the improvement of Speech Therapy Service, allowing our specialists to provide better recreational treatment that enables the rehabilitation of our patients as soon as possible.

Long-Term Impact

Our association each year supports 80/90 new patients together with their families who need to overcome a long and intense treatment-journey along their side. By improving our patient's cognitive condition, we will support society facilitating their learning process and professional life integration. Through this project we aim to avoid many negative and frustrating experiences which can cause, during their childhood, low self-esteem issues which in the future may even require professional help.
