The Right to be Warm
Winter – Pyjamas Please Project
Pyjamas, blankets and warm clothing are collected, made and bought for distribution to needy children throughout KZN who do not have warm clothing to see them through winter.
The Right to Food
School Feeding Scheme
This new project has been implemented in a school where 40-60% of children are not eating on a regular basis. Currently we are feeding 14 children breakfast and lunch but from 2012, we intend to increase this number (in line with food donations).
As phase 2 of the Feeding Scheme, we’d like to provide regular food parcels to needy families at the school. We intend to duplicate this project in as many schools in KZN as possible.
The Right to be Educated
This project is run annually for school children who are unable to afford stationery, thereby hindering their education through a lack of tools and resources.
The Right to be Safe
Just Us 4 Children, in conjunction with Scripture Union, provide a free holiday clinic to children living in the Point area as and when affordable. To date we have held clinics during the 2010 World Cup holiday and the April 2011 holidays as they ensure that children have an alternative to playing on the streets of Durban.
The Right to be Unharmed
Child Abuse Awareness Programme
Just Us 4 Children implements a Child Abuse Awareness Programme (funding dependent) within schools severely affected by all forms of abuse (sexual, physical, emotional and neglect). Many children do not know what abuse is, and accept it as a normal way of life. We provide the support system to enable children, parents and teachers to report abuse, receive support via counselling or abuse crisis management and ongoing support to reduce the effects of abuse on a child and/or family.
Child Abuse Enquiries
We also perform abuse enquiries in situations where a child is being abused by a parent or care-giver.
Just Us 4 Children is collecting secondhand books and will be holding a book sale outside Broadway Pharmacy on the the last Saturday of every month except: 09h00 – 14h30.
