GIG sup­ports KACCH, Bayt Ab­dul­lah Chil­dren’s Hos­pice

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Gulf In­sur­ance Group (GIG), one of the lead­ing in­sur­ance ser­vice providers in Mid­dle East and North Africa, an­nounced its sup­port to Kuwait As­so­ci­a­tion for the Care of Chil­dren in Hos­pi­tal (KACCH) and Bayt Ab­dul­lah Chil­dren’s Hos­pice (BACCH), through its con­tri­bu­tion of sup­port­ing the in­sur­ance needs of both or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Bayt Ab­dul­lah Chil­dren’s Hos­pice pro­vides multi-pro­fes­sional, spe­cial­ist, pe­di­atric pal­lia­tive care and sup­port to chil­dren with life lim­it­ing or life threat­en­ing ill­nesses who are res­i­dent in Kuwait, and their fam­i­lies. Dr Hi­lal AlSayer, Pres­i­dent of KACCH said, “Kuwait As­so­ci­a­tion for the Care of Chil­dren in Hos­pi­tal and Bayt Ab­dul­lah Chil­dren’s Hos­pice are com­mit­ted to ful­fill­ing its mis­sion by pro­vid­ing high qual­ity ser­vices and care for chil­dren and their fam­i­lies in our com­mu­nity. These ser­vices de­pend on the gen­eros­ity and sup­port of or­ga­ni­za­tions like GIG. I deeply ap­pre­ci­ate GIG’s in­sur­ance ser­vice con­tri­bu­tions to KACCH and Bayt Ab­dul­lah as part of their cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

Gulf In­sur­ance Group Se­nior Man­ager, Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and In­vestor Re­la­tions, Khaled Mashary Al-Sanousi, said that the com­pany gives a high im­por­tance to its role in cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. By sup­port­ing KACCH and BACCH, GIG as­sures it’s keen­ness and com­mit­ment to co­or­di­nat­ing and sup­port­ing ini­tia­tives that ben­e­fit the so­ci­ety and func­tions as a dy­namic mem­ber of the com­mu­nity. Sanousi con­firmed that Gulf In­sur­ance will con­tinue in its so­ci­etal ef­forts that pay close at­ten­tion to chil­dren and youth, and health­care in the com­mu­nity. He noted that the Group’s con­tri­bu­tions sup­ported in­sur­ance ser­vices to BACCH, in the ar­eas of fire, theft, ac­ci­dent, health and life in­sur­ance for per­son­nel, and build­ing main­te­nance.

Sanousi con­cluded that the Group is pride of this col­lab­o­ra­tion that pro­motes the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s prin­ci­ples, and re­flects its ac­tive com­mit­ment in sup­port­ing so­cial causes. KACCH is a non­govern­men­tal and non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion reg­is­tered with the Min­istry of So­cial Af­fairs and La­bor since 2003. From 1989, KACCH has been com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing and meet­ing the psy­choso­cial needs of chil­dren and their fam­i­lies in the hos­pi­tal. Nearly 50,000 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies ben­e­fit from the ser­vices of KACCH an­nu­ally, and over half a mil­lion chil­dren since the ser­vice be­gan over 27 years ago. To­day KACCH op­er­ates six Child Life Pro­grams across six gov­ern­ment hospi­tals-Jahra Hos­pi­tal, Amiri Hos­pi­tal, Far­waniya Hos­pi­tal, NBK Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, Ibn Sina Hos­pi­tal, and Razi Hos­pi­tal-in Kuwait. The six Child Life Pro­grams are led by Child Life Spe­cial­ists, who are sup­ported by pro­fes­sion­ally trained Play Lead­ers. Child life spe­cial­ists use play, which is the univer­sal lan­guage of chil­dren, to sup­port with the psy­choso­cial needs of pa­tients and their fam­i­lies.

Bayt Ab­dul­lah Chil­dren’s Hos­pice pro­vides multi-pro­fes­sional, spe­cial­ist, pe­di­atric pal­lia­tive care and sup­port to chil­dren with life lim­it­ing or life threat­en­ing ill­nesses who are res­i­dent in Kuwait, and their fam­i­lies. We aim to im­prove the qual­ity of life for chil­dren and their fam­i­lies from di­ag­no­sis and be­yond by of­fer­ing these ser­vices, tai­lored to the in­di­vid­ual fam­ily’s needs, in the lo­ca­tion of their choice, whether at home, in Bayt Ab­dul­lah or through our outreach pro­gram in their lo­cal hos­pi­tal. Bayt Ab­dul­lah of­fers spe­cial­ist symp­tom man­age­ment, med­i­cally sup­ported ‘respite’ care, home care, re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ser­vices and play ac­tiv­i­ties as well as psy­cho­log­i­cal and prac­ti­cal sup­port for the whole fam­ily. Bayt Ab­dul­lah ser­vices in­clude day care, in­pa­tient, respite chalets, home­care, and hos­pi­tal outreach.
