Inspiring Health Science Studies (IHSS) – SERVE | LEARN | ENGAGE

IHSS is collaborating with Reach for a Dream Foundation – Dream Rooms Project.

IHSS is a team of high school students, led by Mayaskar Nair (Grade 12). The aim is to serve the needs of patient community groups in public hospitals, whilst having the opportunity to learn from and engage with health services personnel. In this way IHSS members are able to make more informed decisions about further studies in Health Sciences whilst serving the community that they are working with.

Reach for a Dream – Dream Rooms project is aimed at providing unwell children with stimulation that they would not necessarily get by lying in a hospital bed (having no place to go).

This escape, although in the hospital, will allow children to leave the hospital ward and engage in activities such as; Imaginary play (Lego, doll house, imaginary cooking and building), educational games (board games and tablets will provide children with the opportunity to still learn), electronic distractions (game consoles) and creative crafts (beading, painting, drawing, stamping and knitting).

IHSS will be doing the following:

Fundraising to source and purchase the following for the play area:
• Book shelves
• Readers/ Story Books – suitable for children between the age of 5 and 13
• Colouring books
• Crayons
• Water Paints
• Paper / Board
• Paint Brushes
• Craft Kits

Delivering the supplies to the paediatric ward

Meeting with health care professionals at the hospital
