SBHF was proud to receive a 2015 Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant. The QoL program provides support to organizations working to improve the quality of life for people living with paralysis. SBHF’s grant will go to providing critical medicines to participants in our Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) center’s Community Reintegration program.
Dieulitha is one participant in the community-based SCI programs who could not imagine her life without the program. Injured in the earthquake, she now lives at home with her three children in the town of Miragoâne.
The program has helped me with everything, all parts of my life. It is most important in maintaining my physical health, my psychological wellbeing, and social standing in my community. I would not be here without the program at St. Boniface.
