Our Social Programmes are designed to promote the health and well-being of the community.
These programs are probably the most challenging services we offer because of the broad spectrum of social problems a community such as Olieven will have, from domestic related issues to HIV and AIDS and Drug and Substance Abuse related issues.
Basically we identify cases in families and refer them to food banks, grants and also prepare meals for training beneficiaries. For cases that require a more professional intervention, a social worker will visit the family.
ODA has over the years facilitated this government sponsored project as a means of alleviating hunger to people by means of the temporarily rendering of assistance to them. It is intended for persons in such dire material need, that they are unable to meet their or their family’s most elementary needs and it is designed to help persons and families over the crisis period. There need to be a very strong element of empowerment and development to the families in order for them to actively take steps to improve their situation and to become independent.
the programme also runs a special dispensation for household affected by hiv/aids
The nutrition intervention provides an important source of food support to the most vulnerable patients receiving treatment. The food banks also store some supplementary food that contributes to increased dietary diversity for patients and their households. Given the small quantity being procured it is important to ensure that the food parcels provided to people on treatment contain some of the supplementary food items and that they reach the intended beneficiaries, without any duplication of services.
