Happy Holidays and Thank You from WRF

By World Rehabilitation Fund | Project Manager

Dear Supporters,

We at WRF wanted to share our gratitude and wish you well during this holiday season.  WRF could not make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities without your support!

As the year comes to a close, we also wanted to give you a project update on the Rehabilitation Project in the Philippines.


As the medical and rehabilitation needs persist in the wake of the Typhoon Haiyan, WRF’s local partner, Philippine Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine  (PARM), recommended that support continue to focus on the Tacloban region, and confirmed that the Remedios T. Romualdez Medical Center (RTR), Divine Word (DW) Hospital, and Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center are the hospitals best positioned to provide quality rehabilitation services for those affected by the storm and those whose service options became severely limited because of damages to health services.

PARM advised that the best way to provide assistance would be to obtain Physical and Occupational Therapy equipment and materials that would enable the hospitals to re-establish rehabilitation medicine units. PARM’s needs assessment includes an inventory of specific rehabilitation equipment and supplies needed in order to scale up services.

Through outreach to various partners, WRF was able to obtain donations that accounted for approximately three-quarters of the needed supplies and materials. We are close to achieving our goal, but we need your help. WRF is seeking support to provide the remaining items so that we can send these essential supplies in 2016.

Please join us as we endeavor to provide essential equipment and supplies to serve persons with disabilities and improve the lives of those impacted by the Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban. Thank you for your continued support!

Happy Holidays,

The WRF Team
