We are committed to make a difference in our community and encourage our people to give back and get involved showing our true Puerto Rican values.
We are constantly collaborating with social responsibility initiatives around the island, and have been doing so for 40 years. Among the most recent, you will find:
Camera Mundi recognizes achievements of people with special needs
As part of the Special Education Month, celebrated in November, Camera Mundi, Inc. held an event recognizing Success Stories of People with Special Needs. On November 13, the School of General Studies of the University of Puerto Rico received our team and our special guests from both public and private entities in a celebration of the achievements of special people that overcome everyday significant visual, auditory, intellectual, sensory, neurological, mobility and/or speech challenges, among others.
Some of the many honorees that were highlighted were:
Alexaly Moreno, a 9 year old girl that suffered a heart attack when she was a few days old which affected her speech and motor development. Alexaly is a user of Rifton walkers, Tobii communicators and Wynn Wizard program for the development of writing skills.
Natanael Aybar, a 14 year old, who with his mobility challenge, has managed to stand out in sports, thanks to the Rifton walker and TherAdapt tricycle.
Jose Alejandro Romero, an 11 year old boy who has severe visual challenges, and is happy he is able to read and do homework independently thanks to the Zoom Twix.
Each of these stories of achievement are a living example of how the support and dedication of parents and relatives, together with teachers, professionals in various fields, government institutions, academia and the private sector, have paved the way so they can achieve their dreams and improve their quality of life.
After announcing in 2008 the construction of a school that would become a platform for social action in order to combat all forms of oppression against children, the Ricky Martin Foundation recently inaugurated the Tau Center in Las Cuevas community in Loiza, Puerto Rico.
Construction of the Center was possible thanks to the contribution of The Ricky Martin Foundation as well as partners from the public, private, and philanthropic sector. Camera Mundi Inc is proud to be part of this team.
The building includes 9 classrooms, a library, a childcare and development area for infants, an amphitheater, administrative offices, a bio-psychosocial office and recreational areas. It will serve 120 at risk children between the ages of 2 months to 21 years who are residents of one of the most marginalized areas of the country.
