The year 2020 has been one of the most challenging in terms of providing comprehensive care for the kids and adolescents of Hogar Bambi. Since the second week of March, Quarantine protocols were implemented due to the current coronavirus pandemic. This situation created a new reality that required many changes. Among them where changes to the protocols for assistance, care and protection of the children in our care, new measures to manage contact between children and adults, and shift adjustments for all personnel.
Concerning their education, the children shifted to an online model of learning. They continued their schooling in this way from March to July with the help of the staff. The 2020-2021 school year began in September with 69 children and adolescents enrolled. They receive support in completing their schoolwork and reaching academic requirements. To compliment this and reinforce fine and gross motor skills, occupational therapy sessions have been increased. This has served to optimize skills such as writing (e.g. holding a pencil properly), daily routines (e.g. getting dressed and eating), and sports performance.
Most importantly, concerning health, preventative health consults have increased (98 consults of healthy children) thanks to the incorporations of a pediatrician to our medical unit. In the month of April all children and staff tested negative for coronavirus, maintaining health and safety protocols. In June and July approximately 411 health consults were made as well as 49 laboratory exams as follow-ups to chronic conditions.
The month of September 2020 concludes with 94 children and adolescents in our care. Hogar Bambi continues to manage the resources needed to provide our care of this at-risk population. We thank you once again for all the contributions we have received.
