QUALITY OF LIFE PROGRAMME
There are four main projects under this programme:
- Giving-a-Helping Hand: Support for frontline women health workers. We have partnered with Masingita Masunga’s Tembo Foods – an emerging black-owned food producing and supplying company to provide food hampers, through generous support from conscientious corporates, to the frontline women workers (health professionals and support staff) in our fight to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the treatment of those already infected. For participation in this scheme, please contact the Project Coordinator, Ms Sibongile Xaba, at +27 61 309 4802.
- Basic health intervention projects for the girl child: Aptly dubbed “Ntataise” (a Sesotho word meaning guide me), the programme seeks to provide sanitary kits (pads, soaps and perfumes) to girl children in under-privileged areas – research has shown that girl children lose an average of 30 days a year due to lack of sanitary towels. of those who have performed dances of survival while facing adversity and despair.
- GBS Africa: This project, in partnership with the Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria, fundraises for research into the Gillian Baré Syndrome (GBS) – a condition that affects over 150 000 patients across the world. Because of the numbers considered minute by the profit-motivated pharmaceutical industry, the industry sees no value in investing in R&D programmes to combat the syndrome. The programme is led by Dr Nomalanga Sibeko.
- A project directed at people living with disabilities: Aptly dubbed “Bridging the Gap”, this project aims to provide wheelchairs and other assistive devices to disabled people in rural areas and peri-urban centres who are too disadvantaged to afford to buy them. It will also organise disability campaigns particularly during the “International Disability Month” – 3 November to 3 December every year. A full concept document plus budget is available on request.
