Pediatric Care Africa is looking for a fundraiser

A well-known international medical NGO based in Mbombela has a vacancy for a fundraising consultant in Mpumalanga.

The consultant will work on a contract basis.

“Our research has shown that a fundraising consultant can conservatively expect to earn R30 000 or more per month in commission,” says Pediatric Care Africa (PCA) founder Dr André Hattingh.

This position is suitable for an articulated, well-presented individual who can speak English and Afrikaans fluently. The ideal candidate will be expected to converse with business owners and managers in the area, he says.

Own transport is essential, as well as integrity, honesty, and a winner’s attitude.

More about Pediatric Care Africa

PCA believes that all children have the absolute right to a healthy life. All of South Africa’s children must have access to the best possible medical care. A sick child must be able to see a top-class doctor or a specialist when needed, receive their vaccinations, and receive medical treatment and surgeries when they are sick. The right to a healthy life includes food security and clean drinking water.

What Pediatric Care Africa does

Doctors’ visits
PCA provides medical assistance to children whose parents cannot afford it by taking them to private general practitioners, medical specialists and clinics. The organisation also conducts large-scale medical outreaches with volunteer doctors where the doctor goes to the children in need.

Around 400 children visit doctors or specialists every year as part of this programme.

Surgeries
Children often do not receive the surgeries they need due to a number of reasons, such as lack of money and transport to go to a government hospital.

PCA tries to arrange surgeries for these children through a network of private specialists and hospitals wherever possible.

Medical outreach programmes
PCA regularly organises medical-outreach programmes in local communities to improve the health situation of the children living there.

The children are examined, diagnosed, and treated by a team of professional volunteers consisting of doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, audiologists, speech therapists and other volunteers. Malnutrition, cerebral palsy, and growth disorders are only a few examples of diagnoses made during these outreaches.

After the children have been examined and treated, they are referred to a specialist for further medical treatment where needed.

Help for mother and child
Many mothers and their children live in severe poverty. PCA looks after an average of 350 children every month, providing food for mothers and children, as well as baby-care products such as diapers, medicines, and everything else that babies and small children need for a healthy start to their lives.

Disaster relief
In the event of humanitarian disasters, PCA offers help to communities not only in South Africa, but in neighbouring countries as well.
