COANIQUEM's Integrated Rehabilitation Program

In order to meet the needs of young burn victims, Dr. Rojas-Zegers and his staff pioneered an approach called “integrated Healing” — a holistic program that includes:

Physical healing, including plastic surgery, scar compressionand rehabilitation using exercises and special devices.

Psychological treatment of trauma, posttraumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorders for both the children and the families.

Education provided to school aged children by trained teachers, at bedside when required by the extent of the treatment.

Spiritual support to help the children develop the inner strength and resolve necessary to deal with their injuries.

While children are being treated at the Rehabilitation Center, COANIQUEM provides teachers so that they do not fall behind in their studies. The children and their parents receive free room and board at Casabierta, one of the facilities of COANIQUEM.

In addition to medical services, COANIQUEM develops and circulates burn prevention literature. Also, in cooperation with government agencies and the private sector, COANIQUEM organizes and conducts campaigns to increase public awareness of fire hazards and burn prevention activities.

Aside from some government support for low income children from Chile, COANIQUEM depends on additional financial support from grants, corporate donations, and donations from gernerous individuals like you to provide free services for children from throughout the Americas.  Please help.
