Group of happy people with disabilities

THE Manuel Peláez Foundation and the Cerebral Palsy Association of Alicante (APCA) have signed an agreement to collaborate over the building of the Infanta Elena Centre, a comprehensive care centre for sufferers of cerebral palsy and related disabilities.
The new centre will be located in El Campello on municipally owned land donated for purpose. An agreement was signed by the president of the foundation, Carmen Robles, and the manager of APCA, Elisa Torres.
Elisa Torres confirmed that the new centre would provide a comprehensive programme of care for people diagnosed with cerebral palsy and the new facilities would include home care, a day care centre, early intervention, outpatient treatment and temporary stays. She added that sufferers would receive expert attention in the centre while allowing respite for home carers.
The association is also raising funds from a number of entities to cover the expenses of the project.
