“МОBILE THERAPIST” PROGRAM IN SUPPORT OF “CENTER FOR HOPE” FOR CHILDREN WITH MULTIPLE DISABILITIES IN SOFIA
I CAN TOO supports the “Center For Hope” in Sofia which helps over 50 children with severe diagnoses and their families. The families mainly consist of a single mother, who has decided to raise her disabled child alone instead of institutionalizing them. It is extremely hard for a single mother to simultaneously be her child’s parent, friend and therapist full time. Her non-stop dedication to her kid deprives her of the time and opportunity to work and support their family financially. She has no time to socialize which leads to depression.
One of the main problems faced by mothers of children with special needs is the difficulty to travel with them due to a lack of transport (living on the brink of poverty) and physical challenges of getting some of the children into a vehicle. This results in children not always being able to attend treatment at the specialized Centers.
I CAN TOO has however created a “Mobile Therapist” Program. It aims to resolve a pressing transportation issue that often does not allow children to attend therapy. The program is raising funds for a specialized vehicle, equipped with a platform for wheelchairs, to transport children to the Center, as well as a mobile therapist who can deliver rehabilitation at home.
