Rehoboth: Youth Health Awareness Project and Presentation

Rehoboth for Families is privileged to be one of the 35 organisations selected by NHSBT to be funded to run this year’s campaign on addressing the organ donor shortage among the African and Asian communities in the United Kingdom.

The theme for our project is: Youth health awareness: My role my goal.

They have been educating our young people on this subject. Their hope is that this project will increase the awareness of organ transplant/donation and blood transfusion amongst young people and their family within the African and Asian Community in Trafford and beyond.

So far, they have used this opportunity to educate and enlighten our youth group on the following:

• The different organs in the body and their functions

• What can go wrong and taking preventive measures

• How organ transplant can prolong life

• New laws on organ donation

• Demystifying the complexities of different types of organ donation

• Empowering our young people as agents of change

• Inspiring interest in a future career in the medical field

Now they would appreciate it if you would consider inviting them to do a presentation to your group at a time most convenient for you. So far, their youth group have done a great amount of work. The presentations between 15-30 minutes, excluding question and answer time, which is entirely up to you how much time you give us after that.

If your organisation is interested, please contact us via email admin@rehobothforfamilies.com

On November 25 2021 the work done and the presentations that can be offered will be discussed at the Trafford Community Collective Meeting. Should you wish to attend this meeting please email info@traffordcollelctive.org.uk

They will be holding an event on the 18 December to round up the project and their young people will be showcasing their work on the day. They will have a doctor who will talk on the topic of ‘addressing racial health inequality and ways to bridge it’. for further information please contact admin@rehobothforfamilies.com
