Bridge The Gap

As therapists, we are well aware of the health disparities that exist in our country and the rest of the world. Poverty makes it doubly hard for children with special needs and their families to avail of rehabilitation services.

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce BRIGHT START Children’s Special Services, a non-profit organization helping children with special needs from low-income families in Cebu City, Philippines.
