The Provision of School Lunch Program In Gaza For Deaf Students – Progress Report

Funded by: The Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust (LFCT)

Implemented by: Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children


About the School Lunch Program:

On January 23, 2014, Atfaluna received the amount of $4,400 from the Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust to implement a supplemental lunch program for children attending the Atfaluna School for the Deaf.  The objective of the program is to provide supplemental nutrition in the form of a nutritious hot meal daily for 300 deaf students during a period of 4 months, starting on January 24, 2014 and ending on May 31, 2014.

Due to the severe economic situation caused by the ongoing tightened siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, ASDC had requested funding from LFCT when it became clear that the children were simply not getting enough food to eat at home and were coming to school hungry, unable to concentrate, and with all the physical signs of under-nutrition. The lack of proper nutrition was affecting the children’s school performance and energy levels.

The LFCT grant allowed ASDC to purchase fresh vegetables and fruits, pulses, pasta, fresh meat, chicken, etc. The Atfaluna kitchen staff prepared tasty meals which were very much liked by the children. A typical meal was a vegetable and meat stew, rice, salad, bread, pasta, and piece of fruit.  Some of the children asked for second and third helpings which seemed to be a clear indication of how vitally important the school lunch program is.  The speed at which the meals were consumed also spoke for itself.

Progress Report


Shimoni Background

Shimoni area located along the Mombasa-Lungalunga road, boasts of rich historical background. Its caves, which also served as a holding pen for slaves centuries ago, are a major tourist attraction. In contrast to serving as slaves' holding pens, the caves are believed to have been used as religious shrines (kayas) by natives. The area has a population of 2374 people. The vast majorities of people in this area live below the poverty line, and are desperately poor.  They have families to feed and school fees to pay for but as the economic growth is slow, employment rates is very low.

Despite her age, sixty-year-old Wallayat Nissa still was economically active, gaining a much-needed second income that provided funds for the education of her four children. Wallayat’s husband worked as an office cleaner in an office close to the family home, but what he gained would only provide shelter, food and clothing for his family. Wallayat Nissa’s earnings as a seamstress made it possible that the couple’s four children, three girls and a boy could finish their school education and enter university.

Donors Assistance Helps A Young Mother Improve Her Quality Of Life With A Hip Replacement

Donors Assistance Helps A Young Mother Improve Her Quality Of Life With A Hip Replacement

Hip replacement is a common type of surgery where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one (known as prosthesis).

THE HIPS

The hip joint is one of the largest joints in the human body and is what is known as a "ball and socket joint". In a healthy hip joint, the bones are connected to each other with bands of tissue known as ligaments. These ligaments are lubricated with fluid to reduce friction. Joints are also surrounded by a type of tissue called cartilage that is designed to help support the joints and prevent bones from rubbing against each other. The main purpose of the hip joints is to support the upper body when a person is standing, walking and running, and to help with certain movements, such as bending and stretching.

WHY NEED A HIP REPLACEMENT?

It might be necessary for you to have a hip replacement if one (or both) of your hip joints becomes damaged and causes you persistent pain or problems with everyday activities such as walking, driving and getting dressed.

Some common reasons why a hip joint can become damaged include:

  • · Oesteoarthritis so-called "wear and tear arthritis", where the cartilage inside a hip joint becomes worn away, leading to the bones rubbing against each other
  • · rheumatoid arthritis – this is caused by the immune system (the body’s defence against infection) mistakenly attacking the lining of the joint, resulting in pain and stiffness
  • · hip fracture – if a hip joint becomes severely damaged during a fall or similar accident it may be necessary to replace it

Many of the conditions treated with a hip replacement are age-related so hip replacements are usually carried out in older adults aged between 60 and 80. However, a hip replacement may occasionally be performed in younger people.
