Covid-19 Intervention

Covid-19 Intervention

THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC is unlike any other disaster Gift of the Givers has encountered in its 28-year history. Such was the unprecedented nature of the virus, its spread and threat of death, it became clear that government alone was not going to be able to deal with it. Given that the pandemic constituted a health/medical disaster, the response by Gift of the Givers was both comprehensive and designed to cover both identified medical and humanitarian needs. As a leading disaster relief organisation, Gift of the Givers immediately made its resources available and became party to relief solution development and – as a locally-based non-profit organisation – opted to focus its attention on, primarily, efforts to assist in South Africa.

Gift of the Givers responded by rapidly developing and implementing a series of vital interventions, inclusive of:

  • Provision of medical supplies
  • Availability of medical equipment
  • Triage
  • Reducing the cost of testing patients
  • Access to water
  • Access to basic supplies and provision of food

We have delivered protective materials including masks, gloves, coveralls, Hazmat suits, head and shoe covers, sanitisers, reusable surgical gowns, scrubs, non-contact thermometers, pulse oximeters, intuboxes, triage tents, blankets, mattresses, pillows, hygiene, maternity and baby packs. We have provided medical equipment including video laryngoscopes and have commenced the roll out of seventy life-saving High Flow Nasal Oxygen (HFNO) machines. Our activities have benefited 200 hospitals and health centres throughout South Africa. Gift of the Givers R10 million refurbishment at Mitchell's Plain Hospital included converting a wing into a dedicated 60-bed COVID-19 oxygen facility, at a cost of R10 million. The month-long renovation has provided an immediate solution – and a permanent facility – for the hospital to utilise as may be deemed fit, post-pandemic.

In addition, Gift of the Givers set-up a 120-bed COVID-19 facility at Bhisho Hospital in the face of rapidly rising rates of infection in the Eastern Cape. The hospital, which was receiving COVID-19 patients from Fort Hare and other regional facilities, was transformed into one of the Eastern Cape’s dedicated facilities for COVID-19 cases and urgently required beds, screens, PPE and window tinting. Gift of the Givers was pleased to be in the position to assist with establishing the necessary COVID19 facility here, delivering 120 beds and mattresses and 200 pillows. We have carried out 20000 pcr Covid-19 tests nationwide having set up dedicated teams for this purpose.

Drought is a major challenge. Fortunately, we have drilled 400 functional boreholes in the last two years that have benefited thousands. Currently in the Eastern Cape our water tankers provide 550000 litres per week, Monday to Sunday, to desperate residents. The desperation has been more intense in recent days as water sources dry out.

Hunger is a bigger crisis than Covid-19. Our call centres, emails and staff are flooded with requests for food. We have delivered aid to areas where children are eating plants to survive or eat anything that comes off a dump site. Gift of the Givers have delivered 130000 food parcels in South Africa, and 40000 in Malawi, Namibia and Zimbabwe, collectively. In addition, we are supporting a number of feeding centres and delivering fortified nutrient products to starving children.

If only.......

During a recent visit to #Wembezi Clinic 🏥, our team distributed 80 baby diaper 🚼 bales to mothers who were present. Each mother was gifted with one bale, consisting of 6 packs.

Prior to our arrival, 👶 Baby Sibanisethu Biyela, was just born so our team presented the mother with 5 bales as she was the first baby of the day. The mother was speechless in response to the thoughtful gesture, and both staff and recipients thanked the team. 💚

Thank you God bless

Bless you all!

So glad to hear you managed to help them with the most needed things so soon

#GiftOfTheGivers #Malawi 🇲🇼 donated 2x 5 000 litre water tanks to Limbe Police Training School - in response to a request from the school.

The school has been struggling to provide enough water 💧 for its students and often has no supply.

Senior Assistant Commissioner, Jane Mandala, Commandant of the Police Training School, accepted the donation on behalf of the school. She stated that the water tanks will assist them in storing enough water 💧 for the students, many of whom are female and require a consistent supply of water.

Water Board - the school's water supplier - is inconsistent with the water supply, and having storage tanks means that the school will have water even when water supply is turned off.

“I looked into spiritual works and have not found anything better than giving food to people. Had the world been in my hands, I would not entertain anything except feeding the hungry.” - The Sultan of Awliya Allah, Shaykh Abd al-Qadir. 🙏🤲

Feeding the poor, the fasting person and any hungry person is the hallmark of the Islamic holy month of #Ramadaan. 🌙

The 27th night of Ramadaan is known as "Laylat al-Qadr" or "Night of Power," because it is the night when the Holy Qu'ran - the Islamic' book of revelation, was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Coinciding with this auspicious night, we catered meals 🍛 for 15 000 people in 15 mosques in #CapeTown. 📍

Imagine going to work every single day, and not receiving a salary…

At Galvan Park Frail Age Home in n, our team delivered 100 0 food parcels 🥫 to nursing staff who have not received their salaries in months. 📆

These nurses 👩‍⚕️ wear their passion for caring on their sleeves. Despite their own families 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 suffering at home because they are the breadwinners and unable to put food on the table, they still get up every day to go to work.

During the delivery, one of the nurses even told us that every morning she wakes up praying for a miracle. 💔

In addition, we also handed over bulk food supplies 🥫 to the home to ensure the elderly have sufficient meals.
