Help Us to do More
World Spine Care Canada launched a project in the town of Moca in the Dominican Republic in November 2014. The Moca clinic is located in a rehabilitation center run by the Patronato Cibao de Rehabilitacion.
We currently have two full time staff on hand at this clinic who are dedicated to providing effective spine care to those who need it. Approximately 80% of the patients who come in to the clinic are female, and more than half of them cannot afford treatments.
World Spine Care treats all patients, regardless of their ability to pay, but we need your help to keep the clinic running. Please help us to support this project by making a gift today.
