There is hope…provided you help!
In Enhance’s quest to help rehabilitate those who have undergone or are undergoing Head and Neck traumas be it as a result of cancer and its treatment or an accident, everyone is expected to chip in their bit.
Put together these bits shall expectedly become a bite, a bite big enough to fight and rehabilitate those affected.
Cancer patients and those undergoing rehab need people to look after them on a daily basis. One can volunteer to help with daily living doing simple chores like assisting in moving around, getting medication, helping with food as also eating (remember, they may have very obvious and visible head and neck issues needing help), helping out with paperwork of every kind including finances, property, inheritances etc., in order, helping visit place and people etc.
India is not a country of the well-offs. And it is seriously over populated. For the teeming majority here, staying alive after cancer treatment or accidents is attribute to divine intervention. Rehab, despite being crucial comes way down the priority list. CHANGE THIS. Support the underprivileged patients financially. It could include:
- Sponsoring the entire rehab (or part thereof) of one patient or a number of them through Enhance.
- Supporting Enhance in procuring equipment’s which can facilitate rehab to larger numbers in need.
Given the sheer number of those needing maxillofacial rehab in India, the number of available facilities and/ or professionals leaves much to be desired. Through Enhance, you can help promising individuals fund their education in the field be it short term or long term besides funding research, the building of infrastructure and facilities. Possibilities exist. What is called for is empathy and resultant action.
