SAVING THE WORLD, ONE GRANDPARENT AT A TIME
We believe children can help make a real di fference, acting as a catalyst to spark interest amongst their wider family. In fact, educating children is proven to be a viable way to enhance their community’s stroke preparedness.
Our fun, engaging and interactive educational programme, primarily aimed at children aged 5 to 9 years, teaches them about empathy and love, as well as providing practical lifesaving skills. Children are empowered with tools to help fulfil their mission of educating their grandparents.
The campaign focuses on the unique bond between children and their grandparents, as the average age of stroke patients is around 70 years of age. We know that grandparents are an especially important source of unconditional love, patience, and kindness for many children around the world. Given stroke is one of the biggest reasons that children lose their grandparents - to death or disability - we are essentially fighting for them to have more quality time together.
