Serving the Disabled

Handicap: "a disadvantage that makes achievement unusually difficult"

RCD's disabled assistance program focuses on the mentally and physically handicapped of the Musac valley. As in many cultures, the handicapped are pushed to the side. Out of sight, out of mind. But RCD seeks to change that perspective. 

But being disabled in Haiti brings exceptional challenges both for the individual and the family unit. RCD seeks to help address these challenges by:

- Getting to know each family and therefore the individual needs

- Bringing medical visits directly to the home

- Identifying skills and community opportunities for the handicapped person

- Providing food assistance every 3 months

Help us encourage these individuals and their families by giving a gift to this program.
