Pays d’action: Afrique du Sud, Afrique
Type d’activité: Santé & Médecine
The Cape Town Children’s Hospital Volunteer Project is a non-profit organization. The project has been in existence since 1978.As a volunteer at this project you will have the opportunity to lift the spirits of the kids whom are ill. You will give your undivided attention to them and create fun things for them to do and engage in.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

The hospital is a national asset and handles the worst cases of disease and chronic illness in children under 12 years of age. Focus areas include renal and liver transplants, specialized burn care, neurosurgery, cancer treatment, intensive care, HIV/Aids research, TB, re-hydration and co-ordination, and management in the care of chronic disorders.

The project believes that physical and emotional healing work simultaneously and is committed to helping make the hospital experience less traumatic for the children by providing emotional support as well as practical assistance.

This is a “Play Volunteer Program”: Play time in the wards is a time and space where patients can express the healthy part of themselves. It aims to bring about a sense of well being, an escape from the “illness”. It creates a warm and happy environment where kids can be kids and not patients. It is during this time that patients can express their playfulness. It is also within this playful relationship that the child’s emotional and social development is encouraged.

You will come to realize that you form part of a multi-disciplinary team, which facilitates the healing process of the little children. It is important to remember that you will not be involved in any medical procedures as per South African health professional laws. Your main responsibility will be to have and create fun.
