A heartfelt Happy New Year and gracias from the children receiving physiotherapy at the Cancun CRIT Rehabilitation Center thanks to the generous donations of members, guests and staff at Royal Resorts. The Royal Resorts Foundation is sponsoring Dionicio, Jacob, Jessica, Jesus and Ricardo so that they can attend the center and receive the treatment that they need to develop their motor and communication skills, improve their quality of life and give them a better future.
Diagnosed with conditions ranging from spina bifida and cerebral palsy to Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (a genetic connective tissue disorder affecting the skin, muscles, bones and blood vessels) and slow psycho-motor development, these brave children are attending physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, speech therapy sessions and arts and crafts workshops. They also have regular appointments with the team of pulmonary specialists, orthopedists and psychologists at the center, depending on their particular needs.
One of the children, Jessica, is the daughter of a member of staff at The Royal Sands.
The Royal Resorts Foundation donated $217,620 pesos to the Cancun CRIT Rehabilitation Center this month and has increased the number of children it is sponsoring to six. The son of one of the electricians in the Corporate Maintenance department, Juan Eduardo has a cerebral development disability and therapy will help improve his coordination.
