In Hogar Bambi we continue working for the overall well-being of the children and adolescents we care for, including developing an action plan that included preventative measures and health care services to avoid risks due to the COVID19 pandemic

 Online and remote learning due to the COVID19 pandemic was another challenge the teachers in the company alongside the computer teacher had to take on. They made use of computer equipment and school materials (whilst following the overall framework of the project) and guided the children to learn and make the most use of these resources and technological platforms provided by various educational establishments (Google classromm, Zoom, Edudatos, Ed Modo, School Viewer, youtube, social networks, email), allowing children to be connected and fulfill their academic responsibilities in the morning hours. Sports, music and job training sessions took place, especially in the afternoon, for the adolescents. The children participated in physical education classes, swimming, music classes and choir. The adolescents participated in short courses to learn specific trades (barbershop, cell phone repair, bakery, and electrician), as well as other trainings that can be the basis of their technical and professional career path (Graphic design and preschool assistant).

 We had 34 children taking occupational therapy sessions (19 from Bambi Enlace home, 7 from Bambi 3 home and 8 from Bambi 5 home). They received early stimulation and psychomotor interventions to address fine, gross, hyper and hypo motor skills, gradually developing their sensory motor skills and self-regulation ability. This translates in better adaptive responses, improved grip, gravitational security, whilst satisfying key walking phases including altering steps and having the ability to go up and down stairs with altering steps. They also developed improved anterior, lateral and posterior defense reactions and have better hand-eye coordination, including the ability perform bipodal vertical jumps, and unipedal jumps without losing balance.

 All the activities carried out are executed in a cohesive way, based on each child and adolescent’s individual plan developed by our team of experts, whilst balancing financial sustainability and programming objectives of the foundation.

First of all, Happy New Year! From all the Hogar  Bambi Venezuela Team, we want to wish you the best and say thank you for all your generous support.

In order to improve life quality of children and teenagers, Hogar Bambi continues to work hard, ensuring them a balanced diet, medical attention, immediate care, sports and music activities, psycho-pedagogical and educational support, among others. 

In 2022, Hogar Bambi established important goals including three major areas: psychological, pedagogical, and medical - pediatric, priorizing this last one due to the COVID - 19 pandemic. These goals are based on the integral care requiared by each children. 

Our technical team creates an individual plan that adjusts to each child requirements and the financial sustainability of the institution. 

We reaffirm our gratitude for your contribution that makes possible the integral care for all the boys, girls and adolescents sheltered in Hogar Bambi.

At Hogar Bambi we prioritize medical attention for at least 101 children from April to July 2021. With the Covid pandemic still being a mayor threat in Venezuela, we were able to guarantee the necessary medical attention with the adequate biosecurity measures. During these months we performed check ups for all newcomers and lab exams required for follow-ups, 4 surgeries were performed: inguinal hernia, umbilical hernia, turbinate hypertrophy and phimosis. Also, a four year old boy was hospitalized. All of these are performed to guarantee the health of the children.

The more frequent activities during this period were:

  • 12 new check ups
  • 144 healthy kid check ups
  • 542 emergency cases
  • 82 lab exams

Since this children don't have a family who takes care of them, for us it is very important to look after the children´s health and many of our financial resources go towards this goal. We are very thankful for your support and hope we may continue to count on you to help us.

At Hogar Bambi, attending children and adolescents is a daily commitment and work that is done with dedication, so that these children, victims of poverty, social deterioration and family abandonment, manage to overcome their adversities.

As a result of the support of their caregivers and the specialized attention of pediatricians, nurses, psychologists, teachers, social workers, occupational therapists, speech therapists and others, it has been possible to improve the living conditions of the 120 children and adolescents sheltered at Hogar Bambi.

For this trimester we achieved the following goals:

  • 69 children and adolescents are attending school, receiving online classes due to the Covid19 pandemic. In the Bambi homes, all of them receive pedagogical reinforcement, showing progress in reading, writing and basic notions of mathematics. Adolescents also receive tutoring in subjects such as mathematics, chemistry and physics.
  • 6 children are being assisted by psychopedagogy to improve their school performance.
  • 101 children and adolescents receive psychological and psychiatric care, family counseling and legal advice, according to their needs.
  • 89 children participate in recreational, sports and trade activities, such as: swimming, music classes, bakery course, preschool assistant course, make-up course, necessary to develop their skills and abilities.

During these 25 years of work for Venezuelan children, we have had the support of different allies, without them it would be unsustainable to care for so many homeless children. Therefore, once again we are grateful for your contributions to ensure the welfare of this child population, whose opportunities and quality of life depend on our solidarity.

At Hogar Bambi we continue to work for the integral well-being of children and adolescents, developing prevention and health care actions, which are necessary to avoid risks due to the pandemic  (COVID19). In this respect, in the last quarter of 2020, we continued monitoring and controlling healthy children, special medical exams were performed in the cases needed and we were also able to give immunizations to the children and staff.

Giving numbers to this achievements we may say:

17 initial clinical examinations and medical histories for children who recently moved to Hogar Bambi.

32 medical consultations to control healthy children.

31 lab tests to monitor and control infections or diseases.

137 external appointments (dermatology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, among

others).

164 vaccine doses, following the vaccination schedule depending on the age of the child, specifically: pneumococcus, Hepatitis A, chickenpox, Influenza, Adacel, Menactra, Twinrix, Rotavirus).

It is important to mention that by the end of 2020 Hogar Bambi housed 101 children and teens.  They have improved their health conditions, have received better nutrition and overall have favored their normal development.  All of the above have been accomplished thanks to all the support received and in Venezuela where the living conditions are very precarious it is very important to keep our youth healthy and wise.
