YOUNGBLOOD5 - MEALS ON WHEELS (5 MAR)

https://mow.org.za/

Currently Meals on Wheels Community Services operates via more than 700 service points throughout the country. In towns and cities these branches usually comprise well established kitchens. In rural areas and squatter settlements, we utilise fully fitted “container kitchens.” At this time, we are commissioning one new container kitchen every two months. While we are very proud of the fact that we have now reached a service level in excess of 29 million meals per annum, we need to at least double this over the next year.

YOUNGBLOOD5 - PRINCESS CHARLENE FOUNDATION (21 FEB)

http://www.fondationprincessecharlene.mc/en/missions

Launched on 14th December 2012, the primary objective of The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is to save lives by putting an end to drowning.

Its missions are to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children preventive measures, and teach them to swim.

The World Health Organization estimated that 360,000 people drowned worldwide in 2015(*).
More than 40 fatalities every hour
More than half the victims are under the age of 25
Children under the age of 5 are the most affected

When a drowning is non-fatal, often the victim is left with severe aftereffects, in particular neurological.

A number of “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes have been implemented around the world in order to fight against this scourge.

The Foundation is equally involved in communicating the values of sport such as discipline, respect for oneself and for others, determination and teamwork. The “Sport & Education” program believes that sport is a tool that contributes to the well-being and the development of children.

YOUNGBLOOD5 - JOZI 4 AUTISM (7 FEB)

http://jozi4autism.org.za/

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Autism are interchangeable terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. People with ASD may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most other people. Autism occurs on a spectrum, which means that while all people with autism share the same difficulties, the condition affects each person differently. Some people are severely affected and others can function independently within society. There are three core difficulties of autism which are often referred to as the triad of impairment.

Social interaction is challenging because people with autism struggle to understand the emotions and feelings. As a result, social behaviour, such as taking part in conversations, recognizing and understanding emotions, as well as the use of eye contact, body language, gestures and facial expressions are difficult
Communication difficulties include limitations in understanding and speaking/expressing oneself
Imagination within autism is usually restricted. As a result, people with autism have a preference for routine and often display repetitive behaviours (like spinning objects all the time). Individuals with autism may struggle with changes to their environment or any other form of lifestyle changes.
Sensory issues are also often evident in many individuals with autism. This means the person struggles to process senses such as touch, smell, sight, sound, taste, and even movement. This often impedes everyday functioning (e.g. can’t tolerate the noise of the toilet flushing, or unable to tolerate certain food).

YOUNGBLOOD5 - SA BREASTMILK RESERVES (16 NOV)

DISCOVERY EXCELLENCE AWARD 2018 WINNER

The SABR won the Discovery Excellence Award 2018 for our SOStainer Mobile Container Clinic Project, an innovative, holistic approach to promoting and facilitating best practice in saving the lives of newborn, premature or very-low-birth-weight infants, with far-reaching implications for the well-being of children and socio-economic development.

SUSTAINABLE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT BEGINS HERE

Since its inception in 2003, the work of the SABR has been focused on premature babies especially and the value that breastfeeding and donated breastmilk (DBM) contribute towards reducing infant mortality and morbidity at the start of the Human Development Chain. However, the health of an infant cannot be viewed in isolation. It is important to consider the broader health services that need to be made available to pregnant women and their children under five.

Since 2015, therefore, we began to expand our mandate to embrace a life-cycle approach to infant health and survival, looking at breastfeeding in the context of early childhood development and not only as a clinical solution to premature morbidity and mortality at hospital level. Ante-natal health, HIV prevention and treatment, immunisation, family planning and breastfeeding support are some of the corner-stones that support better health outcomes for children once they leave hospital after birth and return to their communities.

The SABR has 15 years’ experience:

Pioneering a human milk-banking model in South Africa;
Developing breastmilk pasteurisers to minimise pathogens and maximise nutrition in local African conditions;
Developing a sustainable and replicable, cost-recovery business model for non-profit, human milk banking;
Developing essential systems for remote monitoring and tracking of DBM supplies using customised IT technology
.
In South Africa alone, 8 in 100 babies are born prematurely and 11 000 premature babies die from preventable infections a
