“We have walked a long distance and faced many obstacles which we would rather not face, but we have won, in the end. The project gained dimensions that leave us breathless. The stars are the limit! We dream more and more of getting more, trying not to forget our beginning, our essence. Our reality is very dynamic; we must be always reassessing ourselves, open to the new and watchful for needs. Anyone who shows solidarity cannot be solitary!”

Mirtha Cuitiño , Director and volunteer who has been in Associação Saúde Criança for 13 years

HOW IS THE MONEY USED?

The entire value of individual monetary donations goes directly to Saúde Criança´s projects.

HOW CAN I BE SURE THE MONEY GOES TO THOSE WHO NEED IT?

The families assisted by Saúde Criança must first pass a triage in the public health unit where the child is treated. At the Saúde Criança headquarters located in Rio de Janeiro, for instance, the first assessment occurs in the Lagoa Hospital. According to the selection criteria, the family needs to be below the poverty line and be committed to the goals outlined by the Family Action Plan (PAF), which has goals for not only the ill child but also the entire family. The methodology is applied over a period of two years and the family is accompanied by a team of professionals that periodically check up on the families’ improvements. The demographic assited by Saúde Criança consists mainly of women, who act as the head of the households, who have an average of four children at social risk. The Family Action Plan commits the family to goals in citizenship, housing, income generation and education. By reaching these goals the family seeks to become self-supporting, thus the pattern of misery - admission - discharge - readmission-death can finally be broken.
