Project Rehabilitation and Integration of Persons with Disabilities

The living conditions of the People with disabilities are very difficult, a bit sensitized to this problem society. Unfortunately, these people suffer daily discrimination and social stigma. Factors such as poor access to transport and school facilities, illiteracy, social exclusion, the violence, as well as limitations in the form of communication, the lack of special tutors and support staff, hinders its development within society.

Despite this, these people with difficulties can be embedded in a welcoming and open home and not feel alone, but in the heart of the community and so they could learn that life is always worth living.

Because, We try this activity raise awareness and support for the dignity and welfare of persons with disabilities, through a series of physical rehabilitation activities, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychomotor, cognitive stimulation and communication.

Continued Volunteer Program Socio-sanitary began in January 2016, It is scheduled until December 2018.
