Our team of volunteers is back from Jamaica and excited to share the great impact we created during Smile A While’s first group clinic week!
In total, four therapists travelled to Jamaica to improve services for special needs youth. Our first stop was to provide a 4-hour workshop to 15 Jamaican medical professionals on how to create custom splints for special needs youth.
Smile a While Foundation donated material to make custom splints, which remained at the hospital, for therapists to use ongoing. In total, these 15 therapists serve about 30 youth each for a total of 450 special needs kids reached!
We will be working to fund more materials to send to the hospital so that these therapists can continue using this knowledge to help their patients.
Smile a While Foundation also donated 20 pairs of shoes to Negril Pediatric Clinic to pass on to the youth the program serves.
Here’s a look at our work while in Jamaica. Thanks again to all who made this program possible!
