Cuervo y Sobrinos's Chairman Marzio Villa supports LIFELINE Special School, a school in India for children with various disabilities, in Thandrampattu block, Tiruvannamalai District.
Marzio Villa has supported this charity Foundation from its start, in 1998, and has since contributed to help disabled children from impoverished areas of India. In his own words, "We always talk about luxury, I found beautiful to let people with desease partecipate to my success".
Children with CP/MR in urban cities in India have access to special education and therapy but it is difficult to find rural children undergoing medical therapy. When Terre des hommes Core - one of the organizations that provide direct aid to children in distress - saw this pathetic situation, they wanted to create a change. This motivated them to create a “Lifeline Special School for CP / MR” in June 1998 for rural children.
Presently Lifeline has 3 buildings and hosts 63 children, 22 of which are toddlers, with various disabilities, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome and multiple disabilities, from the areas in and around Thandrampattu. These children are picked up 6 days a week by the Lifeline Special School bus from the villages and brought to the School in Thandrampattu village, where they are regularly receiving special education, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and daily living activities from specialized therapists and teachers. Children who are capable are also getting vocational training at the School. Lifeline Special School also provides uniforms, transportation, food, therapy and special education free of cost.
Cuervo y Sobrinos are proud and honored to contribute to the Lifeline Special School program and to the cause of helping disabled children living in poor communities, and Marzio Villa has directly supported and contributed to the construction of the new School building.
