A wonderful presentation was given of the recent work by Laura Brown from Therapies Unite. Laura is a local qualified physiotherapist who took part in a three month self funded placement as part of a volunteer physiotherapy unit in Mexico. Laura treated disabled children and adults with musculoskeletal and neurological problems to improve their mobility and provide them with access to healthcare that they would otherwise not be able to afford.
Laura returned to the UK and was inspired to set up Therapies Unite, with a goal to set up a permanent volunteer project that places skilled and qualified professionals in communities that will benefit most from their expertise.
Laura plans to return to Mexico in December for many months, any professional or sponsorship help would be welcome. Cannock Rotarians donated £100 funding towards Therapies Unite’s 2012 projects.
