What difference will you make?

The volunteer's impact on the organisation is increasing awareness for the charity to enable is carry out its projects in Africa. Since we don't have an animation design person, the Director does all the designing. The volunteer will be able to allow the Directors time to concentrate on managing the organisation and reduce stress from the Director by reducing his responsibilities. The organisation will be able to carry out its activities better with character animations to present health and medical topics. This will increase the morale of the staff if they know that they have animations to help them do their work. As for the impact on beneficiaries, this will be enormous. Our beneficiaries are people in Africa and UK with health and social care issues. We will be able to provide animations visual information in areas such as providing COVID-19, anti retroviral therapy to people with HIV/AIDS in Africa, mosquito nets distributed to prevent malaria especially for vulnerable populations such as pregnant women and children. We will be able to improve health and well-being for people with myraid conditions such as diabetes, cancers, kidney failure, etc. Most African countries do not have kidney dialysis facilities for kidney patients and we will be able to prevent unneccesary deaths. Having animations enable us to provide more information to people in humanitarian emergencies facing wars, diseases and starvation such as in South Sudan, Cameroon, Nigeria and Central African Republic. We will be able to improve the welfare of the people in emergency situation. We will also be able to prevent maternal deaths and infant mortality which are high in AFrica due to shortage of health service. In UK, the impact will be providing information in animations and help improving the lives of refugees and deprived communities
