Monday was our first day at the clinic, and it was a very very busy one. We were welcomed with open arms by CRILE, the clinic we were at, and they made a beautiful banner 24 children with disabilities came through the clinic, all of whom were seen by Dr. Klein and received orthotic, seating and feeding assessment and treatment as needed.
The children we saw had similar pathologies to what is often seen in Canada: spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, etc.
Many of the children that we saw have never had any of the bracing or seating that they truly need. Wheelchairs are not common in Honduras, and we saw many parents carrying their non-ambulatory children around.
Thank you to all the staff at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital for the great donation of Ankle Foot Orthotics for this years CANADA-HONDURAS CHILDREN’S HEALTH INITIATIVE. I was met there this morning By Christa Bell who kindly gave me a large bag of Braces to be utilized in such a poor region of the world. “This is a group of volunteers who travel to Honduras every year for a one-week clinic geared towards providing children in need with access to health-care services” I have provided a link to their website if you wish to donate.
