SIRC along with our long-time partner Livability, has just launched the “Big Idea” Project. Its aim is to support 50 financially challenged patients to receive rehabilitation services at the Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre. £10 a day is all it takes to provide a total package of care including therapy, vocational training and home modification for each patient.
Disability and poverty go hand in hand. In Nepal a person with a disability and their family are less likely to have access to rehabilitation, education, skills training and employment – opportunities which reduce poverty. This project will solve the problem for poor patients requiring rehabilitation following a spinal injury, enabling them to return home as active members. Without this support, patients will continue to suffer from preventable complications, social exclusion and early death.
By supporting 50 financially challenged patients, it allows rehabilitation to be provided for these patients, who otherwise could not afford to pay. Specialized rehabilitation for the spinally injured enables the patients to lead full and independent lives, to improve their quality of life and to relieve the burden of care on their families.
