A Helping Hand for Christmas
After the success in donating for the good cause instead of buying Christmas presents, ConVista decided to repeat this activity in 2010. The last time the IT consultancy supported the project of the African organization 'Food and Trees for Africa' (www.trees.co.za). With this donation, ConVista took care of a Permaculture Project at the Khayelitsha Special School located in Western Cape. This school caters for special needs children from local vicinity having various physical and mental disabilities. The project provides the necessary nutritional diet for these especially needy children to contribute to a healthy immune system. After a few months the donations beard fruits: The school is now able to support a dedicated group of children with special needs. Accompanied by educators, they are enthusiastically involved in learning how to cultivate and take care of a vegetable garden. The goal is to help the school and community to develop natural food gardens, produce food to supplement the school feeding scheme and involve the learners in activities that will motivate and inspire them to engage with food production and the environment, activities that children in similar schools have enjoyed immensely.
Inspired by the achievement, ConVista decided to repeat this action. This year the company decided to stay closer to the place where it was founded. One thing did not change: Like in 2009 the company focuses on supporting children and their relatives. With a donation for a children’s hospital at Amsterdamer Straße in Cologne, ConVista supports chronically sick children and their families. The organization 'Freunde und Förderer des Kinderkrankenhauses Amsterdamer Straße Köln e.V.' has come together to improve the lives of children 'on our doorstep'. They have been supporting the Children's Hospital continuously ─ with little bureaucracy, but a big effect. The goal is to provide optimal medical care to children and encouraging the whole family during their stay at the hospital. In recent years, the project for example implemented the co-financing of a modern ultrasound machine, an MRI scanner, the funding of the hospital clowns or art and music therapies.

The employees are pleased to take over a small part in helping the affected children and families.

Christmas in Phuket

Enjoy Christmas, it is a time for celebration and eating for everyone…a little of what you fancy over Christmas will definitely do you good…an odd high glucose reading shouldn't affect your long term control or health or health. 1.
