Team McMaster

Request from PT graduate students of McMaster



Dear family and friends,

We are two McMaster Physiotherapy students who will be travelling to Tamil Nadu, India for six weeks in August and September 2019. We will be completing one of our clinical placements at Amar Seva Sangam rehabilitation centre (ASSA). ASSA is a facility that provides care to adults and children with disabilities in the community. It is run by Handi-Care International, a not-for-profit Canadian organization. While completing our requirements for our program, we will be able to gain experience working in a different cultural context and knowledge about healthcare systems around the world. We are both passionate about experiencing other cultures and this international placement will give us the opportunity to see how our training can benefit diverse populations in different contexts around the world

We are hoping to raise $500 towards equipment and supplies for ASSA, in order to provide quality care for the people that benefit from their services. We would greatly appreciate any support that you are able to offer.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. We can’t wait for this unique experience and to support this organization!
