Mobile unit on the Pata-Rat garbage dump
Over the past 3 years, supporting families in Pata Rat has become a priority of the association. The community is structured in four distinct regions: Canton, Dallas, Green Hill and Ramp. Of the 4 locations, the ramp community is the most disadvantaged. The needs of children and families living on the garbage can be multiple, so our intervention is personalized and includes:
- Counseling and support for children and parents
- medical assistance – regular visits of a doctor
- provision of dairy powder and disposable diapers, garments and footwear
- Daily activities and services for children aged 2-3 years (hygienic activities, socio-educational activities).
Children in the garbage dump area, age 3-7, benefit from socio-educational activities within the Wonderland Center. There are similar activities to the kindergarten program, which aim to facilitate integration in school.
