St. Lucia pediatric physical therapist, Elaine Clements, works remotely to continue therapy treatments for underserved children with disabilities. The island is under mandatory stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Elaine provides video conferencing with parents and patients using doxy.me.
Elaine said, “We send parents a link and they join me from their home. They show me what they are working on and I am able to tweak what they are doing and add new activities. I’m also able to see the kids in the equipment they have at home which has been useful.”
Information and Communication Technology for Development bridges gaps. TWB gives a “3 Thumb Drive” salute to Elaine and the Child Development and Guidance Center in St. Lucia.
CMES participants…you will find EM:RAP Corependium chapter & WHO Covid-19 information for USB and Pi users on the TWB server. Topics range from Hand Sanitizer Formulation to Critical Preparedness. We will update frequently, so check back weekly.
A reminder from our partner in the DRC, HandUp Congo,
“A South African word, Ubuntu describes our recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we fulfill ourselves by sharing ourselves and caring for those around us.” Stay well and thank you for being on the frontlines of healthcare.
