Little lives supports eye gaze technology for girls with Rett Syndrome

Eye tracking communication device for children with disability, Queensland

Little lives is partnering with Dr Honey Heussler, a developmental paediatrician at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital to facilitate the use of eye-tracking communication equipment for children with disability in Queensland. The first group of children in whom this equipment will be used is those with Rett syndrome.

Rett syndrome is a rare genetic postnatal neurological disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls, but can be rarely seen in boys.

International

Namuga Hospital Project, Solomon Islands Building a Children’s Ward

Little Lives is excited to collaborate with The Namuga Hospital Project team to provide a children’s ward for this newly built health facility (see a completed section of hospital project below), which will serve a population of 22,000 people of the Star Harbour Area, as well as the two outlying islands of Santa Ana and Santa Catalina.

Previous Projects

Domestic

Little Lives Australia was proud to work in partnership with Hummingbird House for our first local project in 2016, our first year as a charity. This project is in line with our charity’s goal: to help fund those areas which are most in need and where there is a gap currently.

International

Children’s Hospital at Zinga is the first stand-alone paediatric hospital in Tanzania, East Africa. This hospital aims to provide specialist paediatric care to a country in which children under 15 years represent around 45% of the total population, and to whom these services were, until now, unavailable.
