We believe every child with special needs in the Caribbean can have a bright future when given the support they need.
We provide therapy services to neurodiverse children in areas where access to such support is not widely available.
Therapeutic intervention for special needs children drastically improves their quality of life, yet many children around the world receive only sporadic support, if any.
Consistent access to trained professionals is key, and our programs provide training and additional hands on deck to make this happen.
Since 2021, we have sent 1 fellow a year to Jamaica, totaling 64 clinic hours and 8 patients seen. With your help, we can grow our operations and expand to other Caribbean nations.
Nicola & Badrick
Nicola and her son Badrick live in St. Ann, Jamaica. Badrick was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms, also known as West syndrome. This condition causes a series of seizures and spasms that last only a few seconds but can happen one right after the other.
Badrick also has developmental delays and cerebral palsy. He can’t walk. If he needs to eat, his mom needs to feed him.
Nicola and Badrick live a nearly two-hour drive from Kingston—often the only place where therapy services are available for differently-abled children in the country. Because of the distance, Badrick cannot get therapy. Let’s help kids like Badrick.
