Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the needs of the children at Tygerberg Hospital have grown tremendously. Now, the Tygerberg Hospital Children’s Trust needs people to volunteer and donate.Champions For ChildrenThe Champions For Children volunteer programme needs willing residents to serve the needs of the most vulnerable communities in our country.The principles of the programme include:Have fun: Having fun means that you will do what you love and love what you do.Have respect: Champions will be working with children, medical professionals, community people and their fellow volunteers. All may be from different backgrounds and may hold differing views about the world as they see it. Respecting each other is at the root of this journey and volunteers are expected to offer the same respect to others as they wish for themselves.Give freely: Give to others your time and energy. There is no remuneration or payment for volunteer work, lest it is robbed of the wonderful feeling that is giving freely of yourself to others.Communicate openly: The trust encourages open and transparent communication as volunteers engage in projects. To help each other overcome obstacles, open and respectful communication is a great start to making long-lasting friendships. Fabric appeal: The trust is in the process of making fabric masks for their patients and moms, front line and auxiliary workers at Tygerberg hospital.
