Over the years, we have seen many physically and mentally challenged children experience the very positive and helpful effects of regular physiotherapy sessions. Sometimes, the sessions help the children deal with pain and discomfort; or they can help the children grow and develop better, improving their motor skills and mobility.
The Barbados government does its best to fund the necessary physiotherapy sessions at the A C Graham Development Centre, but government budgets are very limited and the demand from our children greatly exceeds what the government’s programme can afford.
This is where Variety steps in to make a difference.
Every month we provide funds to increase the number of physiotherapy sessions available to children with challenges. In an average month, we are able to top up governments programme by about 30 hours of physiotherapy sessions. This still does not meet the needs of all the children, but it is a big step in the right direction.
This is one of the many programmes offered by Variety, the Children’s Charity. All of them are designed to help the children of Barbados, particularly those who are poor or challenged mentally, physically or economically.
You can help us for as little as $50 per year. That is all it costs to become a member of Variety Barbados. Just click on the Membership Form to sign up.
Please help us help the children in need.
