The wind, something of a constant feature in London, the sun, which decided to take a long siesta, and the rainclouds gathering overhead, were unable to spoil the enjoyment of the members of the Latin American Disabled People’s Project on a beautiful afternoon on Saturday 20 August in Burgess Park, Old Kent Road.
Caribbean food prepared by culinary experts impregnated the atmosphere with an unmistakeable aroma, along with the music and infectious joy which is always felt at events held by the organisation.
Congratulations to those who made this event possible, thanks to the Executives, the Board of Directors, the volunteers. A big round of applause to everyone and may these events continue, in which we all form one large family.

Our user Lilliam Ruiz, attended our Pain Management Workshop and here she describes her experience.
On Friday, 13th May a workshop dealing with the subject of pain management was held at the headquarters of the Latin American Disabled People’s Project, LADPP.
Organized by Alicia Gambetta, coordinator of the Mental Health and Well-being Project, we had the opportunity to learn about various ways to manage pain and how to prevent it.
Dr Andreia Negron, a specialist in pain management, provides her valuable services at the Three Boroughs Health Inclusion Team.
She explained to us in depth, a few necessary facts in order to understand pain and its relationship with stress. She did this through demonstrating a series of practical exercises, including the correct postures for sitting and lying down.
Dr Negron, who has spent many years dealing with physical and mental well-being and recovery of refugees and asylum seekers, has vast experience concerning the treatment of pain in its various forms; moreover, she does so with a large dose of love and understanding.
Thank you to everybody who has made such a valuable and educational workshop possible. I have found it more effective than traditional medications and more valuable because it’s not sold in a pharmacy, but given from the heart.
