Thank you for
your support

 

Our cause

 

As the only children’s hospital in the province, one million kids – including some of the sickest and most seriously injured—count on BC Children’s Hospital for specialized care they can’t receive anywhere else. Your support will allow health care providers at the hospital to do what they’ve always done: ensure our kids get the best possible care.

But the COVID-19 pandemic has made the difficult jobs of physicians, nurses, support staff and others even harder, as they work to overcome bigger obstacles. The need to help health care providers respond to these rapidly evolving needs, while they continue to deliver the best possible care to kids is even greater during this challenging time.

By supporting the 2020 Chinese-Canadian Miracle Weekend, you will help raise critical funds in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation to equip our health care providers to confront challenges ahead, and rapidly respond to crucial needs as they arise. All while continuing to deliver the best possible care to kids and families, many of whom are at greater risk, and have bigger needs than ever before.

 

籌款目的

 

卑詩省兒童醫院是省內唯一一所兒童專科醫院。全省100多萬名兒童,其中包括病情危重以及嚴重受傷的病患,都必需在兒童醫院接受專業的醫療護理。您的支持將讓兒童醫院能繼續為這些病童提供最妥善的照護。

但隨著新冠疫情持續蔓延, 所有醫護人員, 包括醫生、護士、行政及服務人員都面對著前所未有的壓力和挑戰。他們在面對時刻變化的疫情狀況的同時, 更在努力確保所有在院病童能夠得到最合適的照顧。

透過您對2020年愛心大行動的慷慨解囊, 將為卑詩省兒童醫院提供最大的支持。籌得的資金將協助前線醫護人員配備合適的醫療物資和所需儀器以應對當下瞬息萬變的醫療狀況。

Below are some of the ways your support will help meet the hospital’s needs during this time of crisis:

Kids: A hospital stay is difficult for a child—but now, it’s even more so. During a time when children aren’t able to see many loved ones, and are feeling more isolated than ever, playrooms have closed and child therapy experts are facing a shortage of bedside activities to comfort and engage them.

Patient families: Families at our hospital are already going through the most challenging moments of their lives, but now, the pandemic has brought unthinkable stressors—from financial stress related to their jobs and homes, to simply getting a proper meal.

Health care providers: Our health heroes, working to provide the best care possible for our kids, face enormous obstacles. They are dealing with a shortage of equipment and supplies to protect their health, and that of their patients. Their mental well-being is also impacted, as they work harder than ever to deliver care under these circumstances.

As champions of children’s health, your support will be the reason we can take on many of the greatest challenges that face us in the coming weeks. During this time when your generosity matters more than ever, we thank you for everything you do.

以下列舉了幾方面目前卑詩省兒童醫院因應疫情所面對的挑戰:

醫院裡的病童們:住院接受治療對孩子本來就是一件很煎熬的事。由於醫院為了預防病毒散播而實施了各項必要的措施以保障社交距離,這代表病童家屬無法在孩子們最需要關愛時守護在他們身邊。另外,兒童遊樂室與公共空間都暫停對外開放,以及醫院裡的兒童心理治療師也無法像平時一樣在病童的床邊進行近距離的活動。這些改變都讓許多病童覺得在醫院的日子更加孤立與難熬。

病童的家屬:身為病童的家屬,照顧因生病或是受傷而住院的孩子本已充滿著各種挑戰。照護與安撫孩子本應是他們唯一需要擔憂的事,而這場疫情為他們帶來了更多意想不到的問題。這些無形的負擔來自生活的各個方面,大至工作改變帶來的經濟壓力,小至為家人準備一份合適的餐點。

醫護人員們:這次的疫情為在前線守護著孩子的醫護英雄們帶來了前所未有的挑戰。首先,面臨醫療儀器和用品短缺,讓堅守崗位的他們不僅在顧慮自身安危的同時也更加擔心醫院病童們的健康。另外,因應疫情而倍增的工作量,也讓他們的心理承受著巨大的壓力。

身為我們未來主人翁健康的守護者,您的支持將會是卑詩省兒童醫院在應對這場疫情時最重要的力量之一。為此由衷的感謝您在我們最需要您的時候仍然陪伴著我們,一起堅守孩子們的健康與未來。
