Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Therapies Unite is a fantastic charity which provides healthcare, rehabilitation, equipment and education services to children and adults with disabilities in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Without Therapies Unite, these services would not otherwise be so accessible due to minimal state funding and no healthcare system. Meaning that they, and their families, would be left to struggle each day; physically, psychologically and financially.

In April 2020, I will be going out to Puerto Vallarta for 5 weeks to complete my final physiotherapy placement with Therapies Unite

I will be working with children and adults of all ages and disabilities and providing: education, hydrotherapy, postural management, providing and making life changing equipment, and much much more.

All of this can only be made possible through your donations. Any donations given will go towards: 

  • Providing specialist rehabilitation equipment
  • Transportation of equipment
  • The training of local clinicians
  • Venue hire
  • Providing basic healthcare services
  • Changing lives forever

Next year, I will be witnessing first hand how life changing charity can be. But it starts here and now with me and you. 

Thank you in advance for any donations.

Therapies Unite works to improve the well-being, independence, integration and inclusion of people with disabilities living in Mexico. Our main aim is to support people who need help through the provision of skilled and qualified professional volunteers, dedicated specialist care, training and equipment. We work in deprived areas where poverty and limited medical care are a reality of everyday life. Through our support and professional expertise, we aim to make a long-lasting difference to people's lives while benefiting the wider community. All of the projects we run focus on empowering local people to set up or to develop existing services in order to help the local disabled community. As well as setting up and running our own independent projects, we also support the development of existing rehabilitation services at special needs schools, disabled children’s centres, physiotherapy clinics, elderly care homes and we also work with the local Government to improve access to therapeutic support, education and advice. We are always thinking about how we can make long term changes and through focusing on education and supporting local people we feel we are able to make the differences that are needed to help improve the lives of people with disabilities.
