WE CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN

This project provided support to children and families of special needs children from November 2017, meanwhile, we continue to advocate for better services and support for families of special needs children while raising funds to provide health assessments, disposable diapers, wipes, nonperishables, etc.

We are concerned that rather than supporting families with developmental services the Government of Saint Lucia have chosen a system that engages parents in a constant struggle to obtain and maintain vital services for their special needs children; to date the Government has defunded the Community Health Assessor for Special Needs Children, therefore parents who are poor or does not have the necessary financial means have difficulty getting their children assessed to be eligible to attend school.

Also, the EDUCATION QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT (EQuIP) funded by the Caribbean Development bank will conduct a study to “enhance special needs education by assessing what institutional and infrastructural improvements are needed to provide quality education and equitable access to children with special educational needs” but the government has removed the infrastructural part of the project to construct a modern physical space for the rehabilitation and education of special needs children. 

Your generosity has taken us thus far and we continue to request your support, advocacy and encouragement to assist special needs families during these challenging times.
