ABOUT

  
Our History
 
Cedric and Widza Bryant are the founders of the Vladimir Bryant Foundation. Their vision came after moving to Haiti from the U.S. and finding no medical support system in place for their son with Cerebral Palsy. During their time in Haiti they met many other children with disabilities and no access to health care.
 
Out of these challenges, Cedric and Widza were compelled to create this foundation to provide rehabilitation and integration into the community for these precious children. The first center, Little Hearts Home, opened in 2012 and provides accommodations as well as physical, occupational & speech therapy with volunteer therapists working alongside the local staff to support and train the children.
In addition to receiving poor medical help in Haiti, disabled children are not welcome in the schools as they are not equipped to teach them. Our goal is to provide ongoing education for these children as we continue to provide medical treatment, outreach & family support.
 
 
Our Vision & Mission
 
We are committed to “Helping Make Their Tomorrows Brighter” one child, one family at a time. Disabled children are referred to by their parents and community, not by their name, but by the word “Cocobai” which translated into English means “Worthless“. We want them to know that that each and every one of them is “Worthwhile” just as we all are.
 
Our services
 
Early Intervention • Physical therapy • Occupational therapy • Speech therapy • Schooling • Medical outreach • Parent Support Group  Counseling • Housing • Spiritual Outreach & Evangelism
 
Cerebral Palsy, what is it?
 
Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that can involve brain and nervous system functions such as movement, learning, hearing, seeing, and thinking. There are several different types of cerebral palsy, including spastic, dyskinetic, ataxic, hypotonic, and mixed.
 
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
 
Cerebral Palsy is caused by injuries or abnormalities of the brain. Most of these problems occur as the baby grows in the womb, but they can happen at any time during the first 2 years of life, while the baby’s brain is still developing.
