Projects 2 - Irish Pallottines
SIUYU Rehabilitation Center
Fr Tommy Ryan SAC commenced this project to help those who are in need of special care and assistance. In providing this facility Fr Tommy and those who assist him are constantly improving the quality of life for those who otherwise would have no access to education or healthcare facilities. This valuable work has ensured many who are in need have received much needed medical care.
Every disabled child especially the intellectually impaired, can avail of primary school education and develop the "skills" necessary for life to the extent that their potential allows. Inspired by the motto of St.Vincent Pallotti:"The love of Christ urges us on "2 Cor.5:14",the apostolate of this Rehabilitation Centre is to provide a services that will help the disabled child to actualize his/her potential to the fullest possible extent.
One such example is the care of Raymundi a 16-year-old young boy from Tanzania, he suffers from a severe spinal disability, also known as Scoliosis- a condition that causes the spine to curve to the side. It can affect any part of the spine, but the most common regions are the chest area (thoracic scoliosis) and the lower section of the back (lumbar scoliosis).
One of the Pallottine Projects was to support Raymond’s recovery. Many Thanks to all who continue to support The Irish Pallottine Fathers Missionary Projects. EWTN Pallottines in Africa DVD available to Purchase.
