WE HELP CHILDREN OVERCOME THEIR LIMITATIONS
In 2020 Save the Children and Hyundai formed a partnership addressing one of the greatest challenges the international community has put out: that by 2030, no child dies from a preventable disease.
Our aim is to create a safe and healthy environment in which children can survive and thrive. Accordingly, we provide community-based access to healthcare services for children and families in remote areas in Mandera, Kenya, in order to help some of the most deprived children to overcome their limitations.
By launching a new Europe-wide campaign, Hyundai aspires to "GO BIG" for children by raising awareness and actively engaging consumers. One test drive of the new i10-model gives one hour of health worker service for children in need.
BRINGING HEALTHCARE TO HARD TO REACH PLACES
Ensuring that no child dies from a preventable disease by 2030
Thousands of children under 5 die every day from preventable diseases like pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea, because they cannot get the care they need. Save the Children is now changing their unfavourable framework conditions: We train and support our Community Health Workers to assess, diagnose and treat children at home so that every child can be reached in time. Our frontline health practitioners are working within their own communities, for their communities.
BENEFITING CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES
For families living in remote areas and struggling to afford healthcare, our community health workers fill another gap in the health system: by identifying children with disabilities, enable them to access assistive devices and referring them to appropriate health care such as physiotherapy, etc. Our community based approach also changes societal limitations for these children by putting their needs in the center of attention.
