Some weeks ago Playtime Seychelles got a donation of 50000 SCR for our project “Safe Children Happy Parents!”.

Worldwide, nearly 1 million children die from injuries every year. Tens of millions more require hospital care for non-fatal injuries. More children die of injuries than die of cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined. Injuries affect children of all ages but small children under five years are at a particular risk. The most common injuries are traffic injuries, burns and falls, poisoning drowning and suffocation.
Children explore their surroundings with great curiosity unaware of all the risks that exist around them. For this reason we as adults need to keep a step ahead to prevent accidents. Small children will always hurt themselves, it is a part of growing up, but as adults we can prevent and minimize the accidents, especially the dangerous ones with catastrophic aftermaths.
Many of the injuries can be prevented by be aware of them constant supervision and safety equipmentfor the home, safety car safety seats, pedestrian reflectors, bike helmets and safe toys.
Convention of the Rights of the Child art. 24 state, that children have the right to safe environments.
Playtime Seychelles have a project called “Safe Children Happy Parents”!
We have published 6 different publications about safety for children that we have donated to Seychelles National Library and they are free to download at our website. You can read two of them online here.
Parents can watch our video clip about safety equipment for the home on our website or on YouTube.
Playtime Seychelles has promoted the use of a small part cylinder in Seychelles.Parents can use the cylinder to check out all small things that could be dangerous for a child under 3 years to put in the mouth and could cause suffocation. The use of a can cylinderprevent suffocation from small parts like coins, peanuts or detachable parts of toys like eyes, small wheels, filling from stuffed animals etc.
