RAMP for LIFE brings back life


QUEZON CITY, Aug 10 — For the past 13 years, the Philippine Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (PARM), a group of Rehabilitation Medicine specialists from all over the country, have been supporting indigent persons with disabilities (PWDs) in various ways through their PARM FUND.

They have assisted many PWDs in various regions with their medical and rehabilitative care, provided orthoses, prostheses and adaptive devices, helped athletes with disabilities participate in sports events here and abroad, supported community activities to increase disability prevention and awareness, and given assistance in livelihood programs. 

This year, PARM partners with Amp for Life, Adaptive Climbers, and designers for a benefit fashion show, “RAMP for LIFE”, happening this Saturday, August 11, 2018 at Seda Vertis North, Quezon City.

Amputees, celebrities, and rehab doctors will walk the ramp during this unique and worthwhile event. Ramp for Life aims to heighten the sensitivity and increase awareness on the power of assistive technology and rehabilitation through inclusion of PWDs, amputees in particular. In addition, the project aims to raise funds to help procure prostheses for indigent amputees. The cost of each prosthesis ranges from P25,000 to P100,000, depending on need.
