In the coming weeks please watch as we add more features to our website and updates on our 2015 projects! Here’s a summary:
1) August: 3 weeks of therapist training kicking off a year long project to reach and support poor, rural families who have children with Cerebral Palsy.
2) September: first ever conference on Cerebral Palsy to be held in Vietnam. This is a 3 day medical conference with presenters from Australia, Canada, Europe and Vietnam.
To support this important work, please purchase a Hope and Dignity therapy doll for a child in Vietnam.
Hope and Dignity Dolls are distributed to children with Cerebral Palsy in Vietnam.
In Vietnam, it is commonly believed (even by some members of the medical community) that nothing can be done for children with Cerebral Palsy. Some families are told to take them home and love them – that’s all you can do! No therapy, no school, no social interaction. Just love.
These are no ordinary dolls. They bring the magic of hope and dignity! They are not just toys. They let children with cerebral palsy in Vietnam know that the world loves them. They remind the family that every child can learn to do new things. They provide hope and dignity for the child and their family. That’s why they are called them: “Hope and Dignity Dolls”.
Just click the link to the left and head on over to PayPal. The dolls cost $100 CDN and you get a charity receipt for the full amount!
Hope and Dignity dolls are knit by a team of loving volunteers.
Speaking of volunteers: Big thanks to Terry Kozlyk, our Communications Co-Ordinator for his many hours of dedicated service as he got this website up and running! TDKtalks.com
