JDC Foundation - support for flood victims in Pakistan

Torrential monsoon rains have triggered the most severe flooding in Pakistan’s recent history, washing away villages and leaving more than three million children in need of humanitarian assistance and at increased risk of waterborne diseases, drowning and malnutrition. The catastrophic flash floods have left one-third of the country flooded. According to local authorities the death toll has surpassed 1,200. 220,000 homes have been completely destroyed, and 662,000 homes have been damaged, leaving tens of millions of families and children internally displaced and homeless. Described as a “climate catastrophe” by the UN Secretary General, the floods have left over 6 million people in urgent need of humanitarian aid. Victims, many of them being children, are in serious need of basic amenities, including tents, food, medicine, clean drinking water, hygiene items and shelter. Without urgent access to these amenities, many families and young children will remain at serious risk and continue to suffer from the impact of the flash floods. Children in particular will suffer more than adults from a climate-related crisis like this one, with those in the poorest communities bearing the biggest burden. The Dentons Foundation is setting up a fundraising campaign, with a target of raising a minimum of €10,000, in order to support JDC Foundation in its flood relief efforts. The Foundation is a Pakistani charitable non-profit organization that focuses on promoting and enhancing the welfare of individuals, families and children faced with poverty, and offering emergency relief and rehabilitation to those that are suffering as a result of crises such as the current flooding. From day one, the flood relief teams of the JDC Foundation in Pakistan have been on the ground in the flood affected areas. They are continuously organizing the supply of important relief goods for children, including dry milk, pampers, biscuits and baby feeders. As children are forced to drink contaminated water, the risk of water-borne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea and malaria continues to increase. The dangers of mosquito and snake bites, as well as skin and respiratory diseases have also increased. The Foundation responds to these risks by offering baby coats to protect the children from bites, and medicines, medical supplies, water purifying tablets, anti-bacterial cream, ointments, safe delivery kits and therapeutic nutritional supplements. JDC also plans to set up medical camps where they can distribute such immediate relief. Moreover, with over 1000 primary and secondary schools having been fully or partially damaged as a result of the floods, the JDC Foundation hopes to assist with the repair and re-construction of schools and educational centers.

L'Envol France

L’Envol, founded in 1994, is a recognized association that offers exceptional free holiday camps for children suffering from serious illnesses. Sick children often have to face obstacles and constraints that prevent them from participating in leisure activities due to their illness. As a result, they may feel excluded, stigmatized or isolated by their peers. By organizing adapted, carefully designed leisure outings and fun holidays, the association has encouraged sick children and young adults to gain resilience, strength and self-confidence to fight their illness, and to escape the reality of their everyday struggles for a short while. The camps offer a life-changing experience and a lasting impact, not only for the sick children that are able to join but also for their families. For almost 25 years, L'ENVOL has been applying the concept of recreational therapy to promote the psychological and social development of sick children and their families. Since 1997, L’Envol has welcomed more than 7,500 children and families in their programs. Our target is to raise €8000-10000 through individual and Firm donations to support L’Envol’s holiday camps.https://www.lenvol.asso.fr/en/

Nesin Foundation – Educating “out of the box”

Nesin Foundation was founded by the well-known satirist writer Aziz Nesin in 1973 to support education of children with disadvantaged backgrounds in Turkey and to ensure that children “are constantly developing themselves, look internally and externally with a critical eye and grow up into productive individuals with social responsibility, self-confidence and altruistic values.” The Nesin Foundation's main site in Çatalca, Istanbul, accepts about 40 pre-school or early-years elementary school children, who stay until they feel they have enough education, skills and maturity to navigate society independently. The foundation does workshops, events, camps and, aside from school, the children have plenty of opportunities to develop hobbies by getting lessons in painting, dancing, ceramic, music, theatre and sports and also spending time with animals at a nearby farm. Most children that grew up at the foundation remain in touch, and form a community that keeps Aziz Nesin’s educational principles alive, at a time when Turkey’s educational system is heading in the opposite direction. While the project is mainly funded from the sales of Nesin’s books, donations are highly needed and encouraged.

Mamas Alliance

MAMAS Alliance is a network of 33 independent autonomous grassroots organizations, operating from 75 sites across South Africa to provide structural and practical daily care to the most vulnerable and needy children. This grassroots level network has been created among organizations receiving support from Kinderfonds MAMAS, an NPO based in the Netherlands which raises funds for childcare organizations in South Africa. The Alliance wants to make a real and sustainable change through a network of MAMAs across the country that reach millions of children who would otherwise face a hopeless future. The Refugee, Unaccompanied, Migrant and Stateless Children Project The project focuses on providing additional encouragement and expertise to undocumented parents and children, to secure certification and assist them on a path to becoming documented. MAMA Annelie has undertaken various cases on undocumented children. She also organises training sessions for child and youth care workers at the MAMAs organizations. Breede Valley APD Children and youth with disabilities often get side lined and forgotten because people do not know how to help and support them on a long term basis. Breede Valley APD developed the day-care program called ‘Partners for Life’ in which they committed to provide lifetime support and loving care to these children and youth. In the villages of Worcester, Zwelethemba, De Doorns, Rawsonville and Touws Rivier in Western Cape, Breede Valley APD takes care of this vulnerable group. The children’s handicaps vary; some are blind, visually impaired or deaf, others have Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, are autistic or have Down syndrome. The MAMAS offer them love and care and teach them how to independently take care of themselves. With healthy nutrition, therapy and lots of personal attention, these children show incredible growth. Vegetable gardens The Alliance has supported local MAMAs by planting thousands of vegetable gardens at their homes. This has been a great success, as it provided thousands of extremely poor families in South Africa with access to healthy nutrition for their family every day. The MAMAs have been able to sell the surplus fruit and vegetables on the local market to earn an extra income. The vegetable gardens have made many of the people feel independent again, after months of being dependent on receiving food parcels. In addition to the parent(s), children also receive education in growing fruit and vegetables, a knowledge that they can use for the rest of their lives. Our target is to raise €5000 to support the above project through individual and Firm donations.

United Way Romania – UNREVOKED 18.0

Our office in Bucharest is currently collaborating on a project with United Way Romania to support vulnerable young people who are excluded from Romania's social protection system. The program focuses on youths who have spent their childhood in state-funded care facilities or other forms of social protection. Under Romanian law, at the age of 18, such youths are "revoked" from the social protection system unless they can prove that they are in a life-threatening situation or are continuing their studies. This leaves them without a safety net at an age where many are not yet able to support themselves.This program - UNREVOKED 18.0 - will offer integrated aid to support their transition to an independent life. These young people need long-term intervention to help them in overcoming obstacles in order to break the cycle of poverty and/or dependence on the social support system. The young people will be able to take part in a two-year program, through which they will be supported and trained, allowing them to work on their personal development and assisting them in finding a job to ensure that they have a stable income to support themselves.United Way will act as a project partner, and will use the funding to set up this project together with Dentons. United Way has the relevant expertise, experience and infrastructure with regards to this type of project methodology, as they have already set up similar projects for both young children, as well as elderly people who have been excluded from the social protection system in Romania. Moreover, the project may provide Dentons lawyers with a valuable opportunity to become engaged on a pro bono basis.Our target is to raise €36,000 through donations from our Firm, our people and our clients to fund the entire two-year program.
