The time involved in looking for a developer, and then explaining what our end goal is takes an opportunity cost on our small organisation.

Description of the project

Every year, 6.2 million children die from preventable diseases before the age of five. Millions of children could be saved through proper education about the 10 most important diseases. i-med vision gives parents, educators and nurses access to knowledge, that is essential for children’s health - anywhere, at any time. By doing so, it is of great importance for i-med vision to consider the local population’s traditional understanding of diseases and to build a bridge between traditional and modern, scientific medicine.
The founders of i-med vision are Dr. Bärbel Reckhardt, a pediatrician, organisational consultant and mediator and Prof. Dr. Markus Reckhardt a neurologist and psychiatrist, head of the Center for Neurology and Pain Management, Klinikum Niederlausitz. Additionally, he is professor at the Institute of Medical Informatics at the Brandenburgische Technische University in Cottbus. Both have been committed to sustainable development aid in Southern Africa for more than 20 years. Together with their team, they pursue the vision to improve medical care and development.
Following an initial pilot phase in the year 2015, where the training concept was tested with two organisations, the first pilot rollout of the complete platform is scheduled for September 2016. This will take place in cooperation with the Grootbos Foundation (SA) in a self-contained township. The aim of the pilot is to adapt and fine-tune the program in real-life conditions. In addition it can then be further developed, leading to a possible expansion into any developing country. At the same time a scientific accompanying study is planned, measuring the platform’s impact on the education and progress of the local population’s medical knowledge.

Every donation counts

I-med vision supports people in South Africa by means of medical consulting and education to improve the health of local children. That’s why every donation counts, because each donation helps the NGO to build more vegetable and medical gardens for the whole community in Masakhane. Check out their project!

New volunteer : Marina

Our biggest success last month has to be our volunteer Marina. Moving to South Africa for an entire year is no small achievement for a German girl fresh out of education. However she has taken to the position with energy and enthusiasm and looks destined to make a huge impact on the programme.

Reconnaissance mission

Last month our CEO went out to South Africa on a reconnaissance mission. She went to check if the area in Gansbaai where we are looking to launch our upcoming project #HealthRevolution is viable for the ideas we have. She met with the local leaders of the area and confirmed their support, and went on a site visit of the township Masakhane to see the possibilities it held for scalability.
