ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

WE ARE CEDARCREST GAIUS FOUNDATION

Cedarcrest GAIUS Foundation is a not-for-profit organization affiliated with Cedarcrest Hospitals. Though GAIUS draws on Cedarcrest Hospitals local and international network, as well as the professional expertise of its staff, it is independent of the Hospital.

GAIUS is an acronym for Give and It Will Uplift Someone. GAIUS was birthed to serve as a beacon of hope to people who might require special surgical care but are otherwise unable to afford it. Our current focus is on children living with deformities and disabilities, with the aim of correcting these at an early stage through surgery and other related interventions. We also focus on children and adults that are suffering from the sequelae of cerebral palsy, post-polio syndrome and sickle cell bone and joint disease.

HISTORY

OUR MANTRA

Every individual deserve to reach their potential, disability should not be a deterrent

This statement serves as a drive to our team; we are passionate in seeing people live to the fullest of their abilities.

CORE VALUE

Cedarcrest GAIUS Foundation is underpinned by core values which inform its life changing campaigns and projects:

  • Integrity
  • Transparency
  • Service to humanity
  • Professionalism
  • Respect for all
  • Partnership: we are open to collaborate with organisations who share similar vision and mission as we do. In doing this we uphold team effort, teamwork, as well as effective communication.

WHY JOIN OUR CAUSES

  • Your sponsorship will go a long way in helping vulnerable children and families
  • Make it possible for GAIUS to embark on its educational campaigns in communities especially in schools.
  • Reach out to families in communities who have children with one form of disability or deformity and are in need of urgent surgical care.
  • Aid our mentorship programmes through which we help build up passion driven and dedicated young medics.
  • You will be a source of joy and hope to these underprivileged families and most importantly these young victims of deformity and disability.
  • You sponsorship will create the avenue for such children to live a fulfilled and non-inhibitive life.
  • It will also help in the fight against child’s rights infringement, such as the right to education. 95% of children with disabilities are out of school.

DONATE

We meet a lot of disabled and deformed children who come from underprivileged homes, their parents are saddled with the burden of making ends meet, and find it hard to cater to the financial and health needs of these kids. GAIUS then steps in and tries to lift this financial burden off their shoulders.

Our current focus is on children living with deformities and disabilities, with the aim of correcting these at an early stage through surgery and other related interventions. We also focus on children and adults that are suffering from the sequelae of cerebral palsy, post-polio syndrome and sickle cell bone and joint disease.

We want to go beyond the walls of our hospital into communities where the burden of need is higher and then be the source of hope and help to such underprivileged homes.

SPONSORSHIP

In Nigeria, over 25 million people are living with a disability, over 7 million of which are children. Also an average of 3.2 million birth related disabilities occur every year. These figures are high but not insurmountable; if we all work together we can help reduce these statistics.

We get quite a number of applications and meet a number of families whose children are in need of corrective surgical care; however they cannot finance the treatment of these kids. Without your help we would not be able to shoulder all of these nor be able to respond quickly to applications we receive from beneficiaries seeking our help.
