Physical Therapy Training and Equipment
Physical therapy can change the lives of children with special needs. Children growing up in an orphanage sometimes miss out on both opportunity and encouragement to meet gross motor milestones. This can be especially detrimental to children with special needs. LWB's Nutrition and Special Projects Program provides physical therapy training by skilled practitioners to teach orphanage staff how to work with children to overcome physical challenges and to continue down the path to physical independence. In addition to providing appropriate equipment and instruction on what exercises are best to help children reach a goal, training received by an experienced trainer can help an overwhelmed or inexperienced staff member feel empowered to help children in their care and to see the value of each child's life.
Your donation to help sponsor physical therapy training and provide specialized equipment will help many children now and in the future.
