‘Fundashon Alton Paas’ has put a program together to send 3 young men with SCI and in a wheelchair to Project Walk in Carlsbad, California, as the first step to introduce these types of development to Curacao, so that the whole community can benefit of this medicine we call ‘intense exercise’. Especially the 3 young men(Alton Paas, Steven Cristina, Jurvis Louresn) with SCI that are going and the other people with SCI on the island will get an opportunity for the first time to do something for their health for a better quality and even the possibility to fully recover and walk again on their own strength.
- To improve the quality of life of three young SCI patients in Curacao and make them walk away from their wheelchair for a better quality of life or and to be able to walk again on their own strength.
- Get the experience, know-how and certified physiotherapists in the method used at Project Walk so to be able to start locally, to continue and help others in the community of Curacao to improve their health condition.
To create the conditions and support to improve the health condition of the 3 young men via after-care by engaging them in the Project Walk program and also work on certifying physiotherapists and bringing the method to Curacao.
