Micky's Foundation in the news

Report on rehabilitation in Aruba 2023

Independent Aruban researcher in the field of social work, drs Caroll Kock produced a very interesting report based on and profound investigation of the Aruban rehabilitation sector. She was assigned to execute this investigation by the Plataforma pa Hende cu Limitacion (PPL), which Micky's Foundation is part of. Her report presents an overview of the status of the supply of different organizations all working for people with limitations on Aruba. It also shows the significant lacking of structural embedding of rehabilitation services in Aruba. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) which are supposed to be on the governments agenda are a main focus in the field of rehabilitation.


Micky's Foundation is doing a very well job with our services to the community, but for the system to improve the wellbeing of our target group, we need to collaborate more effectively. A great example of this collaboration is our ongoing partnership with the MultiDisciplinair Overleg (MDO) at the H.O. Hospitaal with several doctors and therapists to assess cases of severe medical conditions due to (mainly) neurological disorders.
