Charity of the Month - August: UpsideDowns Education Trust

UpsideDowns Education Trust logo

The UpsideDowns Education Trust is committed to delivering the gift of speech and improving the confidence, communication and independence of New Zealand children with Down Syndrome. Down Syndrome occurs in approximately 1 in 800 births in New Zealand.

The UpsideDowns Education Trust funds specialist speech language therapy programmes all over New Zealand. The impact of the gift of speech is dramatic and the results are outstanding. For children with Down Syndrome, receiving speech language therapy means that frustrations subside and they are able to communicate to their families effectively using a structured toolbox of words and often sign language. This makes for more satisfying and empowering encounters at home and at school, and greatly increases the ability of these children to live independently later in life. Assisting these children now has a marked impact on the wellness of the broader community and society.

“As we receive no government funding, the bulk of our income is generated from our fundraising events, organised by a team of diligent parents and volunteers. This is why we would love HealthPost’s help to enable as many children as possible to access this life-changing intervention."

World Vision - Zambian Health Centre

World Vision logoFor people in Northern Zambia, access to health care services can mean a walk of many kilometres, then many hours waiting. HealthPost has chosen to work with World Vision to help build a new health centre (coincidentally called a Health Post) in Kambobe that will directly contribute to improved healthcare, including maternal, new-born and child health.The Zambian Government will provide staff, medical supplies and technical assistance.
 
It is World Vision’s aim to have the Kambobe Health Post up and running as soon as possible. As such HealthPost has decided to keep Kambobe Health Post (through World Vision) a donation choice until we have raised the full amount. To view building progress visit the Zambian Health Centre page.

WWF China

WWF logoChina’s environmental policies affect the world. A good example is the bird that undertakes the world’s longest migration, the godwit. WWF China works to protect wetlands that are a vital 'refuelling' stopover for godwits on their epic flight from New Zealand and Australia to Alaska, as well as other conservation priorities such as the giant panda.
 
WWF’s iconic logo is testament to their work establishing giant panda reserves. Currently WWF China is vigorously engaging with communities, businesses and government to reduce China’s carbon emissions. Beyond the immediate benefit to people’s health, curbing these emissions is critical to avoiding catastrophic and potentially irreversible climate change.

HUHA Thank You

Red Cross work in Vanuatu

With Cyclone Pam causing catastrophic devastation in Vanuatu, we've asked that our latest donation to Red Cross NZ be used exclusively to help provide relief for the people of this island nation. The type of work Red Cross is doing in Vanuatu includes the distribution of essential household items, tarpaulins, shelter toolkits, safe drinking water and health and first aid programs. They will also be rolling out longer term recovery projects to support the stronger and safer rebuilding of damaged homes and of course the restoration and strengthening of livelihoods will also be crucial due to the significant damage to crops, livestock and fisheries.
