Summary

Woodside needs help to try and cover the huge expenses we have incurred as a result of COVID. We have experienced devastating financial challenges during the COVID pandemic, and due to the fact that local donations have almost dried up it is becoming increasingly difficult to meet the many needs placed on us. Our staff are the 1st and only line of defence against COVID for our immunocompromised residents, and we must keep our staff safe in order to ensure the health and safety of our residents.

Challenge

Woodside provides care to 84 immunocomprimised residents with multiple physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities as well as medical challenges. The South African healthcare system is on the brink of collapse and we have had no choice but to increase our care service offering in order to treat our residents in-house due to the potential chance of infection in hospitals. We therefore had to increase medical and PPE supplies on-site as the risk of taking residents to hospitals is too high.

Solution

By assisting us to bring in the funding needed to cover the costs of the much needed PPE, and protective items which would help us to protect our staff who protect our residents (some of the most vulnerable in our Society) from the COVID-19 Virus and variants in strain emerging at a prolific rate. It will also allow us to offer additional training on total barrier care and up-skill our staff so that they are better able to treat and care for any residents who may present with the COVID virus.

Long-Term Impact

If we are able to bring in sufficient funding, this will allow us to be able to obtain all the PPE, protective items, and cleaning agents that would be needed throughout the duration of this ongoing pandemic, and help us to ensure that our precious residents and dedicated staff are kept safe from the continuing threat of contracting the virus. Woodside receives no PPE from our State, and has had to carry the entire burden on these expenses alone since March 2020.
