Join with Save the Children to help support South Sudanese children receive treatment for cholera

 

What’s happening?

Save the Children and working to save children at the Cholera Treatment Centre in Mingkamen Camp, South Sudan. Save the Children’s Cholera Treatment Centre is an orderly series of large tents in the middle of Mingkaman Camp, which is currently home to about 50,000 people. Many families in the camps fled from the nearby town of Bor when fighting broke out in 2013. Save the Children’s Emergency Health Unit is there to give healthcare – and hope – to the thousands of people living in the camps surrounding the centre. The Emergency Health Unit includes teams of specialist staff with the specific expertise and capabilities to deal with a whole range of emergencies. 

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children supports children in South Sudan with healthcare, nutrition, water and sanitation. They also have education and child protection programs to give them a sense of normalcy and let them be children as the fighting around them continues.

The Wishing Well foundation

The Wishing Well was established in 2010 to offer children in out-of-home care, such as foster care and residential care, a range of healing and treatment options usually not accessible as a free therapy in mainstream health.

The Wishing Well raises funds to enable children and young people to access developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments shown to be highly effective in dealing with severe trauma and neglect. These therapies respond to the unique needs of each child and young person.

The Wishing Well is a not-for-profit incorporated charity organisation, established and managed by people seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care and their families. The Wishing Well recognises the importance of the act of giving. We recognise the significance of the participation of community members and all donations are most appreciated.

The Wishing Well operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment.

Support the Wishing Well

The Wishing Well uses its funds to help children in need access all manners of developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments. The Wishing Well takes referrals for any child/young person in out-of-home care in NSW.  Applications are assessed by qualified personnel and on a case-by-case basis.  The decision to fund an application is affected by the following:

  • Funding availability
  • The support the child/young person has to access the proposed therapies
  • The capacity and willingness of the Carer Household to support the child/young person
  • Assessment, which recommends and supports the proposed therapy as relevant to meeting the particular needs of the child/young person

The Wishing Well gratefully receives donations, funding and resources through bequests, corporate partnerships, fundraising events, grants, online donations and other fund raising activities. Money donated to The Wishing Well enables traumatised children access to healing therapies. Please see our website for more information:
