Since March 17th, APAC has been working remotely as part of the protective measures put in place to mitigate the COVID-19 virus health crisis. The main objective of the organization has been, since then, to ensure the safety and good health of our beneficiaries, since most people with cerebral palsy have many associated respiratory issues.
Through personalized At-home Programs designed by our specialists, each beneficiary can continue working on their education and physical rehabilitation. Every week, all 500 people we serve receive their unique program, and schedule to online classes and activities.
The population we serve at APAC, IAP the Association in Favor of People with Cerebral Palsy has been severly hit financially during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, 63% of families of beneficiaries don’t have formal employment and make a living selling goods outside the facilities of the organization. Since these are suspended, it is almost impossible for them to buy essential items such as food, medicine and diapers.
Because of this, APAC has created a Food Package Campaign on HIP Give to delived basic products such as milk, rice, bread, cereal, and diapers. The objective of this campaign is to ensure our beneficiaries are in good health during this global crisis, and they are not lacking essential items.
