Thank you for joining Work-a-Day Canada!
In celebration of World Spine Day, taking place on October 16, 2019, World Spine Care invites you to participate in Work-a-Day for World Spine Care.
From October 13th – October 20th, 2019, join your colleagues and Work-a-Day for World Spine Care. The Work-a-Day campaign involves donating to help to support spine care programs operating at the World Spine Care clinic in the Dominican Republic.
Did you know?
More than a billion people in the world today experience spine related disability.
Spinal disorders disproportionately affect Women, the Elderly, Rural Communities and Lower Income Countries.
The greatest burden of disability worldwide is attributed to neck and back pain combined.
In the Dominican Republic low back pain is the 2nd leading cause of disability after headache disorders.
You CAN make a difference simply by committing to donate a portion of your salary to support World Spine Care’s Moca Clinic in the Dominican Republic.
Here is what your gift can do:
- $2,000 will help to fund a portion of the replacement car required for our volunteers who are running the clinic in Moca, Dominican Republic;
- $1,000 (approximately) will cover the cost of a flight for a long-term volunteer Clinical Supervisor to come to the Dominican Republic to serve patients;
- $250 will provide the budget for clinic training materials and tools;
- $50 will cover the cost of multiple treatments for one month and will ensure those who require spine care, will receive it, regardless of their financial situation.
