by Steaua Calauza Nongovernmental Organization for Children with Disabilities Vetted since 2015


NICUSOR Center for children and youth provides FREE physio, speech, music and sensory therapy to 80 disabled children and youth from the town of Gratiesti in Moldova. These children don't have access to rehabilitation services and often stay home marginalized or become institutionalized. Through the services of this center, kids improve their quality of life, their health and reintegrate into society. The parents learn to assist them better at home and the community integrates them better.

Moldova is poorest European country and access to care for children with disabilities is limited. Due to a lack of infrastructure in Gratiesti, disabled children are kept home, isolated and with limited socialization resulting in insecure children unable to become part of the community and are often taken advantage of. The disabled children of Gratiesti lack access to quality healthcare, medication, needed therapies and are often excluded from social activities due to a lack of infrastructure.


FREE access to therapy for 80 children improve their quality of life through physio, speech, music and sensory therapy; create favorable conditions and rehabilitation for children with disabilities; effective recovery programs, appropriate treatment methods and counseling; and integration in schools. With sufficient funds, the center will be able to provide regular, more effective sessions, allowing treatment to take effect and enable a larger number of patients to be seen on a regular basis.
