Transcript of Prezi for Jersey
JOAC has given over
to support UNICEF's work for children
In 2010, with your support, UNICEF procured and distributed life-saving vaccines to around 25,000 children and 32,000 pregnant women.
your continued support, in 2013
you helped UNICEF to Strengthen healthcare and immunisation services in Maryland
Although significant progress
has been made
by the Government of Liberia
since the end of
the 14-year civil war,
the country continues to face
in ensuring proper care,
protection for its children.
JOAC gave 3 gifts to Haiti
amounting to £207,848:
In 2009, funding enabled UNICEF to reach 40,000 people (of which 20,000 were children) with access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities
Jersey Overseas Aid Commission, thank you for the generous support.
In 2011, JOAC support helped UNICEF to convert 194 temporary learning spaces that were erected in the earthquake zone into child-friendly, semi-permanent primary schools.
These schools are now hosting more than 80,000 children in four departments.
In 2009 your gift of £64,774 helped prevent diarrhoea occurring among the most poor communities by giving them increased access to oral rehydration therapy.
In 2006, JOAC supported a project on water supply and environmental sanitation.
This project aimed to improve child survival in Cambodia by reducing the incidence of diarrhoeal diseases in six provinces.
To date, 1,000 families and approximately 22,000 primary school children from 62 schools benefited from the project.
Construction of latrines in primary schools enabled students to learn and practice hygienic practices for improved health.
Latrines were provided with a hand washing area with clean water to encourage hand washing practices.
In 2005, JOAC generously supported a project focused on improving sanitation facilities in Dominica's early childhood development centres.
Project activities ranged from the construction of toilet facilities, provision of access to running water as well as associated sanitation supplies and equipment, to training in effective hygiene and sanitary practices for managers, caregivers and parents of children accessing the services in these centres.
In 2010, JOAC helped rebuild Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake, a disaster that had a profound impact on children
During the course of the three phases of the project a total of 85 centres benefited from the project (73 preschools, and 12 twelve daycares)
Komigan is four months old, weighs only three kilos and is 53 cm tall. The little boy has suffered from chronic malnutrition since he was born and diarrhea has worsened his condition. “Normally a four-month-old child should weigh seven kilos and measure around 60 cm,” explains Marie the department nurse on the malnutrition ward of the Lomé hospital.
“He arrived completely dehydrated” added Marie. “We had to stop the dehydration very quickly as it can kill a child under-three. So we gave him
). This therapy consists of salts and minerals that help stop diarrhea and consequently help to stop dehydration” added Marie. Thanks to UNICEF’s support, Komigan was given ORS and will receive food and therapeutic milk to ensure her recovery to a normal nutritional status.

In Mozambique, malaria is the leading killer of children, with 3,500 dying every day. Malaria is particularly dangerous for pregnant women and young children with vulnerable immune systems.
Thanks to the generous grant from JOAC last year, UNICEF was able to:
Distribute 225,856 long lasting malaria nets to mothers and their children
Distribute 51,150 leaflets to communities, raising awareness about the risks of malaria and the importance of using bed nets
Train 81 health professionals on the diagnosis and treatment of malaria.
This year you donated £30,000 to the flood emergency response
25 years of independence struggle led to the collapse of essential public services, including the education system, meaning many children have missed out on quality education and infrastructure is limited.
Your gift of £99,166 will contribute to the construction of classrooms and water and sanitation facilities in two schools. This will benefit at least 550 children every school year.
Papua New Guinea
In 2008, JOAC awarded £64,700 towards a project to improve Water and Sanitation in Schools and Health Centres
Bathshiba Un and her sister Georgina’s normal school day starts with a 20 minute walk down to the river to bath each chilly morning in the Western Highlands Province.
Both girls take a container each to fetch water they will need at school. It takes them another half an hour to walk from home to their school. This has been Bathshiba’s regular routine for the last five years.
Bathshiba has lost count of how many times over the years she and her schoolmates have been sent home because of water problems at school.
I do not want to miss a day in school because I know I have to learn as much as I can and do well in my tests so when there is water shortage at school I make sure I carry a big container of water from home to school with me
” said the determined young girl.
Drought has left families in rural Ethiopia without enough food to feed their children. JOAC's support enabled UNICEF to carry out life-saving work.
In 2011 and 2013, generous support from JOAC enabled the construction of five community water points and facilities at two schools and two rural health posts in the selected regions.
The project aimed to provide water and sanitation to the most vulnerable communities in the regions of Gambella, Benishangul Gumuz and Afar. These interventions have reduced the burden of diarrhoeal diseases on women and their families; and contributed to a reduction in child morbidity and mortality from water-related diseases.

normal practice in Guinea Bissau for a parent to sleep with two children.
The contribution from the Commission helped to protect over 25,000 people, including 16,800 children, from malaria.
In 2000, JOAC awarded £50,139 towards UNICEF’s landmine awareness work in Angola.
The project raised awareness of the dangers of landmines to those communities at greatest risk, and thus reduce the number of landmine incidents that maim and kill.
Support was for production of landmine awareness materials to educate 500,000 people in the most heavily mined provinces of Moxico, Huila, Bie and Huambo.
In 2007, JOAC awarded £57,263 to address the extremely undeveloped water and sanitation situation in primary schools in the poorest district of Belize, the Toledo District.
This project benefited over 5,000 children in 25 schools, through the construction and repair of water and sanitation facilities.
This had a major impact on the health of children, and also on their families, as the children took the lessons they had learnt home with them.
In 2007, JOAC awarded £58,735 to a project devoted to improving emergency obstetric care in remote villages in Bhutan
Support enabled UNICEF to provide teaching models and training materials on emergency obstetric care and child birth to Bhutan's Royal Institute of Health Sciences.
These teaching models are helping more than 200 nursing students gain the necessary knowledge and skills for helping women through pregnancy and child birth.
In 2004, JOAC awarded £45,192 towards a school water and sanitation project.
The project aimed to improve health and ensure the best possible start for Capeverdean school children through safe water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion in 60 primary schools.
A population of 4,525 inhabitants benefited from safe water supply and sanitation facilities in their homes.
10 schools (around 2,110 primary school children) were provided with adequate water and sanitation installations.
•Through funding from JOAC, UNICEF has been able to provide 30,000 science textbooks for 30,000 children, and to provide other vital materials for schools. School health, landmines and environmental awareness training that started in the camps will be continued in schools.
Central African Republic
In 2009, JOAC awarded £64,437 towards a water and sanitation project in conflict-affected regions in the Central African Republic.
Water, sanitation and hygiene training was provided to 150 people who have since gone on to become trainers in their local communities.
UNICEF also repaired 25 boreholes that had been sitting unused due to conflict damage. These boreholes provided safe water to more than 17,500 people, including 8,575 children, at the rate of 15 litres per person per day.
In 1999, JOAC awarded £50,000 to educate children who had been deprived of educational opportunities in Nepal.
The project aimed to provide basic education and life skills to children not able to participate in formal schooling due to either family economic pressure forcing them to work or a lack of access to schools.
The project targeted children with two nine-month courses in seasons and hours convenient to the learners.
During 1999, 47,000 children attended level 1 schooling and a further 36,000 were enrolled in level 2 schooling, thanks to the support of JOAC.
The funds provided by JOAC were specifically used to print textbooks and education materials.
In 2008, JOAC awarded £62,200 towards a water and sanitation project.
The project was set up to improve the health of children and families in the disadvantaged districts of Achham and Dang, where 1 in 10 children die before their fifth birthday.
-Over 3,500 people have gained access to safe drinking water
- 2 schools and the Village Development Committee of Dhikpur achieved Open Defecation Free
- Over 2,000 toilets were built in Dhikpur
- 975 toilet pans were provided to disadvantaged families
- Cultural activities and a Toilet and Hand Washing Week were conducted.

In 2011, JOAC awarded £61,582 towards a Kangaroo Care project. Kangaroo Care encourages mothers to wrap newborns to their bare chests, as prolonged skin-to-skin contact improves infant respiratory and cardiac systems, regulates body temperature, increases breastfeeding and reduces the risk of infection.
The grant from JOAC enabled UNICEF to support 10 Kangaroo Care Units (Electronic thermometers, weight scale, tables, benches, cabinet, television, video, beds and DVD player, bed nets and consumables for health centres), equipment for 5 health centres to support child survival integrated activities, 2 days of training for 5 workers in Kangaroo Care Units and community awareness activities.
A mother’s warmth helps premature babies
When Ngone Sene gave birth to her first child on October 21st, she was scared. The baby girl, Aida, was in distress. She weighed only 1.1 kilograms.
“Everyone was telling me all kinds of things I should or shouldn’t do,” she said. “I didn’t know who to listen to.” Luckily, Sene gave birth in a centre where the Kangaroo Care method was practised for premature babies.
Doctors taught Sene that unlike a healthy baby, Aida needed to be fed every two hours. They also showed Sene that by keeping her baby close to her skin when she breastfeeds and sleeps, her own body heat will keep Aida warm, enabling her to use all the energy from the milk to grow. “It’s very easy to do, it’s important for my child to grow up healthy” says 27-year-old Sene. “My child is well taken care of here”.
In 2000, a grant of £49,976 enabled UNICEF to purchase malaria drugs and other medical supplies and to also cover operational costs for supporting the Somaliland Ministry of Health in responding to vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks, including measles.
Two years into the crisis in Syria, children are paying the heaviest price.
UNICEF estimates 6.8 million people are now affected by the conflict. Four million Syrian children are in need of immediate assistance. As of the end of August, at least 1.8 million Syrian refugees are living in neighbouring countries such as Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, 950,000 are children.
Thank you for your gift of £30,000 to support our emergency work in Syria and the neighbouring countries this year.
UNICEF is one of the few international children’s organisations with permanent presence in Syria, where the needs of children are great. We have incredibly courageous staff on the ground trying to reach children wherever they can.
In 2005, JOAC awarded £54,706 to help fund a sanitation and hygiene project in South Sudan.
UNICEF re-opened a major public health institution in Juba, which had became seriously dilapidated due to lack of funding from the northern government in control at the time. This school was the only institution in the whole of Sudan that trained Sanitary Overseers, skilled professionals who oversee environmental sanitation and public health issues.
Over 50,000 children were educated on the importance of health and hygiene.
In 2012, JOAC supported a UNICEF project working to reduce maternal and neonatal mortalities by introducing motorcycle ambulances in western South Sudan.
•5 motorcycle ambulances have been procured and distributed to health facilities
•272 women, mostly pregnant women, have been transported to health facilities using the motorcycle ambulances.
•4 health service providers received training on maternal and neonatal techniques to provide essential health care to pregnant women.
•Community mobilisation activities targeted women, traditional leaders and local chiefs.
Earlier this year JOAC gave UNICEF a grant of £99,990 towards a project supporting maternal health wards in South Sudan.
A maternity health ward will be constructed or renovated and supplied with vital furnishings as well as medical and emergency obstetric equipment to benefit 15,000 pregnant Sudanese women and their babies.
Essential medical supplies will be provided to the ward, including anti-malarial medication, nutrient and iron supplements, vaccines and insecticide-treated malaria nets.
20 health workers will be trained on maternal and neonatal care techniques to establish strong and sustainable professional capacity in the health sector.
In 2002, JOAC supported the Chisomo Children's Club in Lilongwe.
The centre for street children in Lilongwe offered street children a secure environment with health and welfare facilities, literacy and numeracy classes, recreational activities and life-skills training.
The centre has cared for over 100 street children.

Malawi was affected by intense flooding in February 2013, affecting 72,235 people across
The flooding posed a threat to the provision of education services for children, as schools were badly damaged and were also occupied displaced communities. Flood water also affected the water and sanitation facilities at schools, compromising the health levels of school children.
Your generous support this year will construct/renovate 2 classroom blocks, 4 classrooms, and 2 sets of sanitation facilities in 2 schools.
The sanitation facilities will have separations for boys and girls, hand washing facilities and disability friendly facilities.
Learning materials will be provided to schools to ensure that quality learning takes place.
Approximately, 3,404 school children will benefit from the renovated classrooms and constructed sanitation facilities.
