In FUN we promote social inclusion
Norma Rojas, Johanny and Carollina Rubio
The FCI orthopedic team that collaborates with us at FUN is lead by doctors Julio Sandoval, Luisa Delgado, Camilo Turriago, Astrid Medina, Camilo Estrada and Luis Cely. With this partnership we want to give the opportunity to low-income and vulnerable families and children who could not be treated under the national health system, do not have no access to private health care assistance or because of delays in care or inefficiency in referring them to specialist to be rehabilitated, they do not have the opportunity to access to this kind of procesures. In FUN we provide this opportunity to transform their lives.
Carolina Rubio, Esteban’s mother, is the coordinator of the FUN health area. «This is a project that fills us with satisfaction and happiness. Thank you all. It is inexplicable the feeling that I have and that produces to change the lives of these children. Seeing their smiles, and those of their parents, uncles or grandparents, touches our hearts and motivates us to keep working». Through these interventions, we radically improve the situation of children and also of their environment and family, removing discrimination barriers, marginality and promoting social inclusion and well-being. Now, these 32 operated children have accomplished their dream of walking and running, and are closer to accomplish any goal they set.
