Aug 2013 Turks and Caicos Island Trip

Deborah volunteered her expertise to children in need in the Turks and Caicos Islands for the third year in a row, in August 2013.  This is the developmental team. 


Deborah and Dr. Claire Richardson were invited back again in 2012 by Dr. Helen Leonard and 1 World Foundation to continue with their multi-disciplinary team work.  Deborah was able to source a wheelchair and take it with her for a young boy paralyzed by a tumour that had spread to his spine.  This year the focus was follow-up consultations and in-services to school staff.  The excitement in the schools was such that 20 new children were referred for screenings.  Of particular note was the discovery of an 8 year old girl with a previously undiagnosed cleft palate.  This will lead to referral for surgical repair which will be life changing!
