The Alannah & Madeline Foundation: $30,000
This charity works towards keeping children safe from violence and believes every child should have a safe and happy childhood. They care for children who are victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse through the delivery of programs which aim to prevent this violence right up until the age of 18 years. Our funding will be extremely valuable to many Australian children not only in assisting them with their initial trauma but the ongoing services and activities to help them in their long term recovery
Variety- The Children’s Charity: $180,000
TSWF assisted in purchasing 12 specially fitted buses (Sunshine Coaches) Australia wide for Variety – the Children’s Charity. They call them Sunshine Coaches because they literally bring sunshine into the lives of disadvantaged, disabled and/or sick children who otherwise might be confined to their homes or schools.
Red Dust Foundation: $22,000
Red Dust strives to improve the lives of Australia’s most disadvantaged children. Our funding constructed a multi-purpose sport surface in the remote community of Walungurra in the Northern Territory. The surface hosts basketball, volleyball, netball, indoor soccer and indoor cricket games. For the kids out there, sport is everything. This is very inspiring stuff.
The Heartwell Foundation: $20,000
This Foundation works with hundreds of children helping to improve their health & fitness, motor skills, body image and confidence. This is a sensational physical training program for children with terrible cancers, tumors, victims of accidents and it allows them to; take a step, throw a ball, swim a stroke, learn to hop – every physical activity or action that we all take for granted. Our funding will go directly to supporting 5 children for the 2007 year.
Shayanne is a four and a half year old twin girl, who is one of three children of Cassandra and Terry. Shayanne was born at 24 weeks and was hospitalised for four months following her birth with multiple medical concerns including a cerebral hemorrhage, hydrocephalus, impaired vision due to a detached retina, pulmonary hemorrhage and seizure activity. Shayanne has Severe Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy and a tongue thrust, together with visual difficulties and a profound hearing loss. Shayanne is significantly developmentally delayed.
Shayanne is at risk of spinal deformities if she isn’t positioned properly while sleeping. Shayanne’s parents perform physio exercises on her numerous times per day in order to get Shayanne more mobile. This also helps prevent postural deformities which if not corrected will prevent her from weight bearing and possibilities of ever being able to walk in her walker.
TSWF purchased a Volka Hi-Lo bed which is perfect for Shayanne and will last her a life time. This bed is an important piece of equipment for Shayanne and it will assist her in gaining some independence as she has little active functional movement and we hope greater autonomy is achieved through the use of the Hi-Lo bed. Not only that the uses of this bed are varied as it will serve as a change table and physio table.
