“One of my strongest beliefs is that ‘it takes a village’ to make anything important happen, and you will not find a better example of that philosophy than the bonds of friendship that span many countries, continents, and time zones between ASBAHT and The LSB Project. Our village is just a bit wider than most.”

Sifa Sylvia, Administrative Officer for Association of Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Tanzania

"The Laurita Spina Bifida Project, Inc. envisions a world in which all people who are affected by spina bifida, be it an individual with spina bifida, a parent, child, sibling, or caregiver, or supporter of the spina bifida community, can engage and interact openly with others in the community and connect based on their shared hope for increased awareness."
