Standing Up:just A Dream





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: Cachoerinha-RS

Total Budget: $32,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

our project has the purpose to transform the dream of handicapped people, which is standing up and it becoming reality for them. For a wheelchair user or a bedridden, standing up brings immeasurable benefits to the circulatory function, digestive and respiratory, raising the life's quality. And for handicapped people, who have motor deficiency, the body mass suspension, done by the UNWEIGHNING Equipament (described below), searches for the motor rehab, in other words, as long as the patient acquires better capacity to sustain oneself on the running machine, the parcel of body weight supported by the equipament is decreased; increasing, then, the patient's independence. Giving the possibility of training early gait in patients with cerebral palsy, stroke, Parkinson's, medullary trauma and other pathologies.Around 200 users in a year are attended in CAchoerinha APAE(Association of Friends and Parents of the exceptional)in number 370, Mario Tavares Haussen Street, Cachoerinha City, in Rio Grande do Sul state. Brazil.

With this equipament, our expectation is to reach and attend even 200 patients in five years, because the same enables the improvement and accelerate the people's treatment in the whole development from the prevention until the rehabilitation

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
