Our NSEP guides our Wellness Days which normally happen on Saturdays at 6-week intervals. During Wellness Days the team educates caregivers about correct feeding practices while children’s growth trends are screened by professionals who assess the data according to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Growth Standards charts. Our NSEP also designates the appropriate interventions which we may take for children at various stages on the road to healthy eating practices

“All children deserve to grow and reach their full potential and good nutrition plays a huge role in making this a reality.”
– @_marotholi_

Marotholi’s interventions include nutritional rehabilitation administered on-site by medical professionals in the team, referrals to the local clinic in acutely ill children, as well as the provision of nutritional food packs to facilitate the nutritional rehabilitation. These food packs mainly function to guide caregivers toward healthy feeding practices for children younger than 5-years old.

In Motsoaledi (Soweto), our NSEP has helped almost 200 children since it was implemented. We wish to expand our reach to help as many children and parents as possible. In abiding with the social distancing principles put forward by the Covid-19 National Command Council, Marotholi still strives to get vulnerable South African children the help they need in the safest way possible. We will be raising funds to sponsor the purchase and delivery of nutrient-rich food packs discussed for the children of Motsoaledi township.

WHAT REPUBLICANS ARE DOING?

This is the safest way we can contribute to the well-being of others while adhering to the broad principles of social distancing as announced by our government. We look forward to working with more organisations doing this important kind of work in the future so we can continue playing our part in rallying the support we get from our clients to move south Africa forward.

To this end, we have partnered with Marotholi Outreach to dedicate a share of our income to sponsoring as many nutrient-rich food packs as we can during this pandemic. Given their success in the past three years, and their competence as a unit, we have full confidence that Marotholi Outreach will ensure that help reaches those who need it the most.

Through our virtual briefing system, Republicans have stepped up to do our part in helping to stop the spread of the highly contagious Covid-19. The gravity of this current pandemic has opened our hearts to the challenges faced by victims of other health concerns.

 

We look forward to contributing our share to the well-being of historically disadvantaged South African communities during these distressing times. Because we know that solutions work best when directed by professionals, we want to partner with organisations that know how best to help people in need. 
 

“Do what you can with what you have.”

WHAT IS COVID-19?

On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, China. ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2’ (SARS-CoV-2) was confirmed as the causative agent of what we now know as ‘Coronavirus Disease 2019’ (COVID-19). Since then, the virus has spread to more than 100 countries, including South Africa.

HOW IS IT TRANSMITTED?

While the first cases probably involved exposure to an animal source, the virus now seems to be spreading from person-to-person. The spread of the disease is thought to happen mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread. Thus far, the majority of cases have occurred in people with close physical contact to cases and healthcare workers caring for patients with COVID-19.

Human Coronaviruses are common throughout the world. There are many different coronaviruses identified in animals but only a small number of these can cause disease in humans.

On 7 January 2020, ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2’ (SARS-CoV-2) was confirmed as the causative agent of ‘Coronavirus Disease 2019’ or COVID-19. The majority of the case-patients initially identified were dealers and vendors at a seafood, poultry and live wildlife market in China. Since then, the virus has spread to more than 100 countries, including South Africa.
