This Christmas and New Year, we are raising funds to support our partners at the health project, the Horse Theraphy and Integral Care Centre. The cost of the necessary therapies that each child needs for a month is around 115 USD and most of the parents lack the resources to cover it.
The Horse Therapy and Integral Care centre was created due to the concern that parents of children with special needs had as they were interested in rehabilitating and improving the quality of life of their children. It was formed on March 18th 2008, to help children and young people with physical injuries, motor, mental and sensorial disorders. The parents had an active role in the creation of the centre, and they were trained and learned to ride horses to help on the therapies1. Since its creation, the centre has worked to raise funds to maintain a school where some of therapies are delivered as well as the extra sessions they have at the horse centre and the pool.
So far, thanks to your donations and a PGA Golf tournament that our staff and volunteer participated in, the Horse Therapy and Integral Care centre received a grant of $4,000 USD. For each GVI participant they received a donation of $285USD, meaning that in total, the GVI volunteers and staff raised $885USD that will cover for 7 months of therapies for one children at the Special Needs School.
Thank you for your support in 2013 and we hope to bring you fantastic news from fundraising for this initiative in 2014!
