Charity of the Month: Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity

The charity of the month this December is Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. I recently found out about the amazing work this charity is doing and I am so impressed with their dedication. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness. The charity provides families support workers to help them to make the most of the time they have together, giving them practical and emotional support, whenever they need it, for as long as is needed. The support workers help the whole family adjust to their new lives and the support provided is varied and dependent on the family’s needs.

Some examples of the kind of support the Rainbow Trust support workers provide are:

  • listening to a family’s fears and anxieties
  • helping to explain illnesses, diagnoses, and treatments
  • keeping a seriously ill child company during hospital stays
  • driving families to medical appointments to help save time and money
  • organising fun activities to help sick children, their brothers and sisters
  • support through bereavement and grief.

This vital service is available at no cost to the families that need it. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity relies almost entirely on the kind donations they receive and the generosity of the public to deliver the support. So donations are always needed. You can support the charity by donating here. As little as £5 can buy arts and crafts to keep the child entertained. £10 could provide a memory box for a bereaved family and £26 would pay for an hour of support to a family caring for a seriously ill child. Another way of getting involved with this charity is by volunteering. You can look out for opportunities for that here.

Charity of the Month – Women and Children First

Every month, I like to support a new charity with a mission I am passionate about. This month, I am supporting Women and Children First Charity. This is a charity very close to my heart as it supports deprived women and children in Africa. With the current state of affairs all over the world. these women and children are even more vulnerable, which is why the charity needs our support more than ever. Women and Children First are working very hard to ensure people are aware of the importance of handwashing, social distancing, and wearing masks to mitigate the risks of the disease.

Women and Children First Charity

We want a world where all women, children and young people can survive and thrive. Too often they face problems that harm or kill them. These include preventable, treatable diseases, or issues in pregnancy. We are pioneers at empowering local communities, enabling women to take the lead in achieving this vision. We guide them to overcome their problems, bringing people together to find the answers they need. By the end of 2021, we will save the lives of 10,000 women, children, and young people and enable 1,000,000 more to live the lives they choose.

I bet you can see why I am passionate about this charity. Being able to save lives and empower women and children is amazing. I am grateful there are charities like Women and Children First doing great things for humanity. You can watch this short clip from a community midwife – Oyam, talking about her experiences helping women and her Coronavirus concerns –
