Challenge

Spina bifida is a condition of the spine and is usually noticeable at the time of birth. This type of neural tube defect (NTD) can appear anywhere in the spine, as it does not form as it should be. damage to the spinal cord and nerves. This is why the disease in children sometimes causes physical and intellectual disabilities, ranging from mild to severe, as well as symptoms, where there are generally needs for assistive devices, such as braces, crutches or wheelchairs

Solution

This project will make it possible to mitigate the impact on children and their families and caregivers, taking into account that when accessing health services in rehabilitation, therapeutic, support, empowerment and others, 14 children and adolescents beneficiaries can strengthen and improve the quality of life through different skills at the level of health, education, habilitation, recreation and integration, promoting disease prevention

Long-Term Impact

The project will benefit 14 children and adolescents and will indirectly enable their families to carry out an therapeutic accompaniment to the disease. Live in family groups where they are characterized mostly by the absence of the father figure and their mothers are responsible for providing all household needs, in other groups it is evident that they are families where not only live dad, mom and siblings but also other consanguineous, increasing health problems, and overcrowding in homes.
