The Canada Honduras Child Health Initiative (CHCHI) team is gearing up for a another mission to Honduras March 26 to April 1, 2017. We will again be treating children with disabilities including cerebral palsy and spina bifida in the town of Gracias, Honduras at the local rehabilitation centre CRILE (Centro Rehabilitacion Integral Lempira). This year we are planning some exciting initiatives, including new specialized seating and orthotics therapists and expanded capacity to treat more children. We will now feature medical assessment and treatment, therapeutic seating, feeding assessment and orthotics for children with disabilities, enabling children to better sit, walk and enjoy greater participation in life. We work closely with local staff, sharing our expertise and building capacity.
All of our volunteers fund their own travel expenses, so all donations made to CHCHI goes directly to therapeutic equipment and medication to help Honduran children with disabilities.
