Winter Squash: Know Your Fruits and Veggies™

Squash is native to Central America and Mexico. Archaeological evidence suggests squash may have been first cultivated 8,000 to 10,000 years ago. They were first cultivated specifically for their seeds since early squash did not contain much flesh. Over time, squash cultivation spread throughout the Americas, and varieties with a greater quantity of sweeter-tasting flesh were developed. Squash was one of the “Three Sisters” planted by Native Americans. The Three Sisters were the three main native crop plants: maize (corn), beans, and squash. These were usually planted together, with the cornstalk providing support for the climbing beans, and shade for the squash. The squash vines provided ground cover to limit weeds. Christopher Columbus brought squash back to Europe from the New World, and like many other Native American foods, their cultivation was introduced throughout the world by Portuguese and Spanish explorers.

Sending Your Diabetic Child to School

Things Every Parent Should Know

If you have a school aged child with diabetes you get to add an extra challenge to your list of things to do: preparing to send your diabetic child to school. You aren’t alone. More than 176,000 children and adolescents have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. In addition to having diabetes, they also have one other thing in common: most spend the bulk of their day in school, away from the protection and care of their parents or adult caregiver. As you know, most children with diabetes take medication to control it. These medications, especially insulin, must be carefully balanced with food and exercise to achieve good glucose control each day. Health and safety are at risk when these are not balanced. Diabetes management in children and adolescents requires complex daily management skills which can challenge parents and cause them to worry. This can be even more pronounced when their children are in the care of school personnel who may or may not understand diabetes and its management to ensure the safety and well being of students who have diabetes. It’s going to add an extra layer and complication to your life, but the peace of mind should be worth the effort.

Child Africa’s School Projects

Give Care and Education

We are a charity organization undertaking school projects to give poor East African children care and high quality education. By building our own schools based on charity donations and fund-raising, we will have good teachers, good food, good study content and teach the children to be self-sufficient. Many children will have to live at school for a number of reasons. By giving a charity donation to support our school projects, your help will give many a poor child good learning conditions and facilities.

We need your charity donation to help finishing our school projects. Please have a look at our school donation list and find something you want to sponsor. If you want to dedicate some of your time helping us with fund-raising, please do so by contacting us .

What exactly does your charity donation sponsor?

A school consists of several parts with different costs. It is optional which part of a school you wish to give a charitable donation to. You can choose among different buildings, rooms and inventories.
What can you sponsor?

Our charity donation list shows people and organizations that have given a charitable donation to our school projects. When you give a charitable donation, your can chose if you want you name or your organization’s name to be shown on Child Africa’s charity donation list.

Give a charity donation to our school projects

School project no. 1:
A school which provides an education for deaf children in Kabale, Uganda

Our first school project was a primary school which also gave a group of deaf children the chance of an education. This school is located in Kabale, 400 km from Kampala in Uganda. In the years to come; Child Africa is planning to offer some of the school places to children who have a hearing disability. Deaf children often become impatience and aggressive because of their inability to communicate with other children and adults. Sign language lessons for the teachers and all the other pupils will be part of the program. In this way, we aim to help eliminate many of the communication problems between the deaf children in the local communities around Child Africa schools.

Through charity donations, we intend to build and run our schools in Africa. Our school project will be based on charity donations and fund-raising.

School project no. 2:
Equator in Uganda

We have build a simple school for over 350 children at the Equator The school is located only 75 kilometer from Kampala; the capital city in Uganda. This project is financed through charitable donations and fund-raising, and through a Norwegian telemarketing concept.

This school has now build a new nusary section and a dormetory for boys and girls too.

School project no. 3:
Phase 1: Primary School in Kabale, Uganda

In this third project we will build a big school for 2,500 children (approx. 100 deaf children will also be included) at Kabale.We have bought a large plot for this purpose and plan to start building phase 1 in spring 2014. This school project is going to be financed mainly by charitable donations and fund-raising. Hopefully people and companies from all over the world will donate towards items for the school or parts of the buildings through our website.
The sports field/play park was opened in February 2013 and is already in use. A road joins these to the school site.

Child Africa has taken on the task of restoring several parts of the Mboti School building. The region is extremely dry and water is scarce. Child Africa has already provided a water tank and water collecting system to help the school. The school’s dream is to have their own well so that not only the school but also the local community will have water supplies.

Education for Children with Hearing disabilities in Kabale, Uganda

Child Africa plans to give more deaf children who are dependent on sign language for communication, the possibility of going to school.

Eye on Ethics

Reflective Practice in Social Work — The Ethical Dimension
By Frederic G. Reamer, PhD
April 2013

Recently, I received an urgent voicemail message from a hospital social worker: “Please get back to me as soon as possible. I have a meeting tomorrow morning with our head of human resources, and I’m very nervous about it.”

Later in the day, I connected with the social worker and learned the following: He had been employed by the hospital for seven years and had never been disciplined. His current predicament began when his immediate supervisor called him in to discuss concerns about possible boundary violations and an alleged inappropriate dual relationship with a hospital patient. The social worker explained to me that in his personal life he is actively involved in a community-based group of parents who adopted children from China. The group sponsors a wide range of activities to support and enhance the children’s ethnic identity. Through this involvement, the social worker said, he and his wife had become very friendly with several other adoptive parents.

About three weeks earlier, one of the parents who had become a good friend was admitted to the social worker’s hospital for treatment of a chronic, debilitating infection. The friend did not receive social work services. During the friend’s hospital stay, the social worker occasionally stopped by his room to say hello and inquire about the friend’s health. The patient’s attending physician had collaborated professionally with the social worker in other hospital cases and was well aware of the patient’s friendship with the social worker.

One afternoon during the patient’s hospital stay, the physician contacted the social worker and explained that the patient was distraught after having just learned that he was diagnosed with bone cancer. According to the social worker, the physician asked the social worker to visit the patient and offer emotional support. The social worker visited the patient in his room and spent about an hour helping his friend process the distressing medical news.

The social worker documented this patient encounter in the hospital chart. During a random quality-control review of social workers’ chart entries, the hospital’s social work supervisor read the note and became concerned because the social worker had not been assigned to provide social work services to this patient. The supervisor learned of the social worker and patient’s friendship and notified the director of human resources, who documented this “incident” in the social worker’s personnel record and asked to meet with the social worker.

The Nature of Reflective Practice
In 1983, the late scholar Donald Schon published his influential and groundbreaking book The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think in Action . Schon’s thesis, based on his extensive empirical research, was that the most skilled and effective professionals have the ability to pay critical attention to the way they conduct their work at the same time that they do their work. Schon coined the terms “knowing-in-action” and “reflection-in-action,” which suggest that some professionals can take a step back and think hard about what they are doing while they are doing it. The concepts are akin to the widely used social work concept “use of self.”

Ordinarily the concepts of knowing-in-action and reflection-in-action are applied to practitioners’ cultivation and use of technical skill, whether in surgery, architecture, town planning, engineering, dentistry, or psychotherapy. In my view, and as the above case demonstrates, social workers would do well to extend the application of these compelling concepts to their identification and management of ethical issues in the profession. Ideally, effective practitioners would have the ability to recognize and address ethical issues and challenges as they arise in the immediate context of their work, not later when someone else points them out. Put another way, social workers would have a refined “ethics radar” that increases their ability to detect and respond to ethical issues.

Of course, the most important benefit is client protection. However, an important by-product is self-protection, that is, the increased likelihood that social workers will protect themselves from ethics-related complaints.

Implementing Reflective Ethics Practice
Certainly the hospital social worker who called me with panic in his voice would have benefited from reflective ethics practice and highly sensitive ethics radar. Had he reflected on the ethical dimensions of the boundary challenges that emerged when he interacted with his friend and hospital patient, it is likely that this well-meaning practitioner would have avoided his unpleasant encounter with the human resources department. The social worker’s decision to visit his friend was not the error; that was a humane and compassionate gesture. The error, rather, was not reflecting on his role in that moment and managing the boundaries carefully, including discussing them with his friend and his supervisor.

In my experience, ethics-related reflection-in-action entails three key elements.

Knowledge: Skillful management of many ethical dilemmas requires knowledge of core concepts and prevailing standards. Ethics concepts are addressed in professional literature and standards exist in several forms, including relevant codes of ethics, agency policies, statutes, and regulations. For example, the National Association of Social Workers’ Codeof Ethics includes explicit standards pertaining to boundaries, dual relationships, and conflicts of interest (especially section 1.06). It would have been best for the hospital-based social worker to consult relevant literature and standards with regard to conflicts that can arise when a social worker encounters a friend or social acquaintance in the work setting. The hospital’s personnel policies also prohibit dual relationships that involve conflicts of interest.

In some cases, although not all, statutes and regulations address ethical issues. In the United States, both federal and state laws address various ethical issues, such as confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, and social workers’ ethical conduct. Such laws would not have been particularly helpful in the hospital social worker’s case, but often they are helpful and critically important, for example, when social workers must decide whether to disclose confidential information without clients’ consent to protect a third party from harm or whether parental consent is necessary to provide services to minors who seek help with substance abuse but insist that this information be withheld from their parents.

Transparency: Reflective social workers who sense an ethical issue share their concern with supervisors, colleagues, and appropriate administrators. An effective way to protect clients and practitioners alike is to avoid any suggestion that the ethical issue is being handled “in the dark.” Such clarity demonstrates social workers’ good faith efforts to manage ethical dilemmas responsibly. When appropriate, clients should be included in the conversation.

Process: Although some ethical decisions are clear-cut, many are not. The hospital social worker who contacted me was unsure about the best way to manage his involvement with a good friend who had become a patient. Unfortunately, the social worker did not notify his supervisor about the dilemma or seek consultation. He documented his lengthy hospital-room encounter with the patient, but doing so in the client’s hospital chart created the impression that the social worker was functioning in his professional capacity, not as a friend. My hunch is that had the social worker notified his supervisor of his friendship with the patient and made clear that any contact with the patient occurred as a friend, the social worker may have avoided any adverse personnel issues. What I have learned is that many ethical decisions are not simple events; they require a considerable, often painstaking, process.

During the course of the profession’s history, social workers have refined the art of reflective practice. Historically, these skills have been applied primarily to clinical, policy, advocacy, and administrative functions. Clearly, reflective practice should extend to ethics as well.

— Frederic G. Reamer, PhD, is a professor in the graduate program of the School of Social Work, Rhode Island College. He is the author of many books and articles, and his research has addressed mental health, healthcare, criminal justice, and professional ethics.

Our Staff

Our pediatric care specialists put the emphasis on “care”

At KinderMender, our highly-trained pediatric care specialists have been carefully selected based on their fun-loving and compassionate nature as much as their medical expertise. Our atmosphere is a collegial one, requiring a special personality.

For us, exceptional health care means more than just writing a prescription. It’s about skilled caregivers and an attentive and welcoming place of business. The need to seek medical care for your child is fraught with enough stress, the last thing a parent needs is an indifferent – or worse, rude interaction with a team member.

Our pediatric care specialists, both menders and support staff, sought work in the medical profession for two simple reasons: to help and to heal. And the pursuit of those goals is what you will find at KinderMender.

Healthcare vs. health care

Healthcare is on its way to becoming a one-word noun throughout the English-speaking world. The change is well underway in British publications, where healthcare already appears about three times as often as health care and is used as both a noun and an adjective. Many American and Canadian publications resist the change, meanwhile, and health care remains the more common form in North American newswriting, as well as in government and scholarly texts. In many cases such as on health-related U.S. government websites health care is the noun (e.g. your health care is important ) and healthcare is the adjective (e.g. find a healthcare professional ), but this is not consistently borne out, and both forms are widely used both ways. Many publications and websites seem to have no policy on this at all.

Short answer: Outside North America (Australia goes along with the U.K. on this one), use healthcare. In the U.S. and Canada, make it two words (unless you want to help speed the compounding process).
