Hi, I'm Laurita!

It's time to talk spina bifida

The Laurita Spina Bifida Project, Inc. (The LSB Project) is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, non-profit organization founded in 2014 by Laurita Tellado. Our mission is to start a global conversation about spina bifida, while connecting individuals and families living with it around the world, and to educate health professionals from all fields on the issues affecting this community, including mental health and adult-centered care as part of the action plan.

Children with spina bifida continue to be discriminated against, especially in the developing world. They are denied a chance to participate in activities that promote inclusive development in societies. This makes them more vulnerable to secondary disabilities, all forms of abuse, and always at risk of early mortality.

However, working together, with your support, we can make a difference in their lives. Thanks to The Laurita Spina Bifida Project for all the efforts to reach millions of such children.

“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."
