Benjamin Bloom Hospital (San Salvador, El Salvador)
Teach: Through a series of workshops, we trained Salvadoran physical and occupational therapists to create customized splints for burn patients. A critical step in the healing process, the splints help patients like Gilbert maintain proper alignment and reduce the risk of compromised mobility later in life.
Collaborate: Our work in El Salvador is part of a larger effort to enhance burn care capacity throughout the Americas. We play a lead role in facilitating the Caribbean and Central American Burn Consortium, a group that promotes the exchange of best practices among regional healthcare providers.
Sustain: By sourcing specialized material through Supporting Partners like AquaPlast, we helped the Bloom team address current patients’ needs and prepare for the care of future patients.
