Introducing The Kindness Collaboration
Together let’s make someone’s 2021 their best year ever!
After the tougher than tough 2020 experienced by us all, Fedhealth felt the need to put our name and backing behind a project that could really achieve some good in 2021. With the help of our members and service providers, we wanted to “make someone’s year” and make a tangible difference in the lives of our people.
We have partnered with Operation Healing Hands (OHH), a charity started by a group of doctors, to launch The Kindness Collaboration. This project will see us, working closely with OHH, our members and service providers, raise the funds to cover the preventative and life-saving screenings/ surgeries of South Africans who simply cannot afford quality medical care.
All medical professionals associated with OHH provide their time and skills for free; the funds raised will therefore go towards things like consumables and random medical expenses. And since Fedhealth is a non-profit organisation that may not donate money, we are reaching out to our members and service providers to do so.
Our target for the first quarter of 2021 is to raise R200 000 for a free circumcision clinic – with more drives following later in the year.
Projects for 2021
During 2021, we will focus on four initiatives (one per quarter). The first initiative of 2021 is a free circumcision clinic.
Why this project?
In South Africa, traditional male circumcision is regarded as a sacred, indispensable cultural rite of passage to many young men. Each year, thousands undergo circumcision as part of their initiation into manhood. Tragically, after circumcision, many require treatment for complications such as septicemia, gangrene, severe dehydration and genital mutilation.
OHH, in association with Advanced Health Day Hospitals, provides an alternative to traditional circumcision. A simple circumcision may seem like a small operation, but it makes a lasting impact on the young patients who can now be proud of their traditions while being sure of their safety.
