Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! Act as a parent to children in need at a Children's Hospital. You can help the hospital staff by giving the children their meals, playing with them, reading, singing, and stimulating the children as they recover. Some of the work you'll be involved with includes helping prepare meals for each child and helping them to eat. The formulae are drawn up to combat the particular nutritional problem that a child may be suffering from. No previous experience required, just a love of children and desire to help
You’ll work for as many hours as you choose, between 8.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. We suggest you work for about 3-4 hours a day, at least 3 days per week. However, you can work anything up to 7 days a week if you wish!
Some of the work you'll be involved with includes:
Helping in the kitchen - this means preparing the meals to specific formulae for each child to combat that particular child's nutritional needs to ensure their recovery
Serving the food, taking care to ensure that each child receives the food and/or formula mix that has been specially prepared for them. Generally, these undernourished children need feeding every 2 to 3 hours.
Helping to feed those children whose mothers are unable to be at the hospital to help them eat.
Playing with the children.
Playing with the children and entertaining them, as well as giving them love, attention and care, is a very important aspect of the project. The majority of children range from a few months to 5 years old, and if they are fretful, unhappy and insecure, it impedes their recovery. Your care and time spent with them will aid their recovery.
It is very important to have an energetic positive approach to this volunteering project as lots of encouraging stimulation is as important for the children and the loving care and attention you can give them.
