ILS CHARITY PARTNERSHIP

OZ Harvest-1

Independent Living Specialists in collaboration with Cerebral Palsy Alliance supported a program on feeding hungry children in schools and homes Australia wide from April to June 2018.

In most instances, at least one child in every classroom sleeps hungry at night or goes to school hungry almost every day. Being hungry results further than the classroom and they are bound to fall ill through weakness and miss school often due to the poor mental and physical health issues.

Being hungry is not the only issue. Thousands of families do not have access to nourishing and healthy food in their day to day lives. Not having nutritious food in the early stages of a person’s life could result in permanent health problems for the entire lifetime.

Although OzHarvest is currently trying their best to supply fresh food regularly to schools and homes Australia wide, public assistance is also required to provide a million meals to feed these hungry children.

Monetary donations were channelled through every purchase made from ILS.

Donation details:

1. Purchase an item from Independent Living Specialists.
2. Add on the donation in your shopping cart.
3. Money raised were donated to the youth of the street.

• Donation of $15 enables a person to feed a mother and child breakfast for two weeks.
• Donation of $25 permits a person to provide breakfast for a class of children for two days.
• Donation of $50 enables a person to provide a family dinner for a month.
• A single $ provides 2 meals for kids in need. Therefore your generous donations will help feed thousands of hungry people.

Charity Program

Stepping forward to help people in need is an essential part of life, benefitting worthy causes and the community. However, the benefits can be greater for the person who volunteers. Volunteering on some project and helping the needy helps to reduce stress, combat depression, mentally stimulate and give a sense of purpose. Although, the more a person volunteers, the more they benefit, it doesn’t have to be a long-term commitment or take a large amount of time from your busy schedule. Simple things like giving and helping those in need can, in turn, improve one’s health and happiness.

Youth off the streets which was supported by ILS in the charity program this quarter is a non-exclusive community organization established in 1991, working for young people from 12 to 25 years facing challenges such as homeless, drug dependency, exclusion from school, neglect and abuse.

They have grown from a van delivering meals to young homeless people on the street to a major youth specific agency offering a fully-fledged care through a wide range of services. Supported by volunteers, their services include reaching out and residential treatment programs, counselling, crisis accommodation, alcohol and other drug control services.

A GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT TENS THERAPY UNIT

257449-P4GD34-856

There are many ways to ease multiple aches and pains and physiotherapy is one such mode that can help a person to lessen the pain instead of increasing the intake of prescribed medicines. Physiotherapy takes care of the physical part of the inflammation, soreness, and stiffness with exercise and massage. It also assists in healing the body by supporting the body to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals.

Independent Living Specialists has some unique physiotherapy devices available in all their stores Australia wide.

Introduction to TENS

TENS or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation therapy is a way to control pain without the intake of drugs. This machine executes millions of tiny electrical impulses to manage the pain.

Blocks pain message

It blocks the pain message from reaching the brain. On placing the TENS pads on the pain area, the electrical impulses race to the brain, dominating the pain impulses resulting in less pain.

Blood Circulation

It improves blood circulation which is the usual reason for various kinds of arthritis, aches, and pains.

Choosing the right device

Although this device helps to reduce the pain level, a certain device might suit your needs better than another depending on where the pain is being felt.
