Your donations allow us to provide everything necessary for those who have sustained a spinal cord injury this allows them to resume a fulfilling life that offers maximum autonomy and freedom.
For people suffering spinal cord injuries; paralysis, loss of independence and all this entails creates very difficult conditions for people to accept. In addition to facing difficult physical challenges, many of them must also deal with other difficulties linked to their condition such as social exclusion, financial hardship, insecurity, etc.
The loss of autonomy requires many home adaptations as well as reliance on external services that can be very expensive. Little financial support is available to these people who very often find themselves unemployed as a result of their accident and who must rely on expensive services.
In Canada, people with disabilities have lower average total incomes as compared to the rest of Canadians, $ 27,057 vs. $ 35 860. To this add the many financial obligations tied to the disability and the disparity is even greater.
