As you already know, the current pandemic has resulted in children and young people with disabilities having an even more precarious situation, due to the lack of social contact, the absence of therapies, fewer chances to go out to the street…
For this reason, the Lukas Foundation decided to mobilize to help alleviate this situation, and at the beginning of the month we launched a new aid program for individual therapies during the 2020-2021 academic year at our Therapy Center.
To develop the scholarship program, we requested support from our regular partners and donors, and also from supportive and committed entities that had already collaborated with the Foundation on other occasions.
And finally, thanks to the support and solidarity and human side of Sirvent & Asociados consultores, Eurobanan, Audalia, La Caixa and Otten, scholarships are now a reality.
After having considered all the applications submitted to date, eight users are already benefitting from scholarships including sessions of Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychology or Speech Therapy; according to their needs.
One of those beneficiary families is Benicio’s family. His mother Gisela has shared with us this beautiful message: “We had been referred to the Lukas Foundation, but when we finally discovered it, it exceded all our expectations. From the moment you arrive, you feel hope and a sense of opportunity. As well as professional excellence and innovative infrastructure, there you find people full of love”.
We are pleased to confirm that given the good reception of the scholarship program, a new application period will soon open for the families of the FLK Therapy Center users.
