With approximately forty children regularly using the physiotherapy department, I AM CO saw the need for a selection of sensory toys and equipment.

Ms Rockella Smith, Physiotherapy Manager at the HSA, said the department was very thankful for the donation. “The equipment and sensory toys will greatly benefit the children that receive treatment here,” Ms Smith said. “They will help our young patients with mobility, balance and flexibility. In addition to the specialised equipment, the sensory toys will keep the children engaged and incorporate fun activities into their sessions.”

I AM CO was established in 2004 with a mission to alleviate poverty throughout the Caribbean with the provision of basic needs and educational opportunities.

Ms WendyAnn George, I AM CO representative, was present to handover these items. “I AM CO is here to assist Individuals to become more independent thereby reaching their full potential,” Ms George said. “We saw the HSA’s physiotherapy department as an opportunity for our organisation to touch the lives of the children currently receiving treatment, as well as those in the years to come.”

In addition to the twenty sensory toys, I AM CO also donated the following:

Leckey Tot Standing Frame

Climbing wall ladder

Angle ladder

PT stool

Home therapy system – linear glider

Big Talk Triple Play Sequencer
