Between December 2014 and March 2015 Micky's Foundation had organized their first project. A pediatric physiotherapist, Kim Rijnders together with a pre verbal speech therapist, Linda van Dijk have been giving intensive therapy to 13 children. Many children have shown great progress. To give an inside to the work they have performed with one of the children, here is a television program on Micky's Foundation, featuring Brandon Lopez (3 years): TeleNoticia February 2015.

PROJECT 2                 2015                         

In June 2015 the second project has taken place. Pediatric physiotherapist Stéphanie van Gaal has given intensive therapy to 12 children until August 29th. Many children from the first project continued having therapy in the second project. Unfortunately the pre verbal speech therapist we contracted withdrew at the very last moment. Therefor we have only worked with Stéphanie in this second project. Meet Stéphanie working with Micky. 

PROJECT 3                2016                             

This project has taken place between January and April 2016. Miss Jana van Hecke, pediatric physiotherapist from Belgium, together with miss Jael Bootsma, pre verbal speech therapist have treated 15-20 children for 3 months. They have given intensive and specialized therapy at the homes of the children. We will again strive to work as much as we can in close cooperation with the local therapists, in order to fine tune the therapy. Meet Jana working with Jevan.
