Toronto non-profits team up for year-end event

The Phil Child Care Foundation (PCCF) and the Maureen Teen Mom’s Foundation (MTMF) plan family-friendly year-end celebration on December 17
TORONTO (November 28, 2022) — The end of the year is a time for reflection and planning, and as those celebrations commence and before the planning begins, The Phil Child Care Foundation (PCCF) presents an opportunity for area residents to come together for a free and fun family event at 1:30 p.m. December 17 at the Jenner Jean-Marie Community Centre, 48 Thorncliffe Park Drive East, York.
The End of the Year Event for Children, Youth and Families will bring together people from different parts of Canada for one last event of the year.
“For too many families, there are far too few opportunities to come together and enjoy each other’s company,” said PCCF director Phillip Mugabi. “We are thrilled to be able to offer everyone a day to join in celebration and fellowship as we turn the page on 2022 and look forward to the potential in the coming year.”
The event is a collaboration with Maureen Teen Mom’s Foundation (MTMF), previously known as Maureen Teen Mom’s Network.
“Thanks to the amazing staff and community supporters at Maureen Teen Mom’s Foundation (MTMF), we are able to present this free opportunity for family fun,” Mugabi said. “Their work in Toronto and beyond is a testament to the power of a dedicated group of individuals working to improve their community.”
MTMF focuses on solving the challenges associated with young motherhood, a situation recently noted by Save the Children as affecting millions.
Annually, 13 million children are born to mothers under the age of 20 worldwide, according to the MTMF.
“MTMF is a champion for young mothers across the globe that face countless challenges that accompany raising children,” Mugabi said. “We are excited to work with them to host the End of the Year Event for Children, Youth and Families for all families later this year.”

“We believe this event will be a meaningful milestone to end the year and to acknowledge those great friendships and networks cultivated throughout 2022,” he continued. “And, of course, it will be an evening filled with fun and laughter as we welcome together the potential of 2023.”
The Phil Child Care Foundation strives to support youth and children in various development avenues such as innovation, creativity, computer literacy, software literacy, leadership, leveraging talent, self-development and communications.
“Anywhere we can positively impact families, we look to make a difference at the PCCF,” Mugabi said.

Mugabi has been involved in transforming communities since 1998. He was featured in Beach Metro News only around six months after arriving in Canada and has been a frequent agent of positive change in the community since.
The PCCF is only the latest component of those efforts and continues to grow. Mugabi believes helping individuals, youth, families and community organizations is a calling that he is proud and humbled to continue.
“We may not see the outcomes from events like the End of the Year Event for Children, Youth and Families until far in the future,” Mugabi said. “But as our foundations continue to enrich the lives of Ontario residents, we are happy to know that, while we may not see it directly, the reward to the future is immeasurable.”

Phil Child Care Foundation plans ‘Super Fun Kids Event’

Phil Child Care Foundation plans ‘Super Fun Kids Event’

One-day event brings children from around Toronto together to celebrate family, friends and the future
TORONTO (August 29, 2022) — Today’s children are the leaders of tomorrow.
Yet as the pandemic continues to bring unexpected and difficult-to-understand situations to area youth, the Phil Child Care Foundation (PCCF) created a day for children to gather and enjoy various activities to help normalize their experiences and move forward.
From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 4, the Super Fun Kids Event will feature outdoor games, music, gifts, sports and more as area children come together in R.V. Burgess Park, 46 Thorncliffe Park Dr.
“This summer was tempered by the continued threat of the pandemic,” said Phil Child Care Foundation director Philip Mugabi. “So I wanted this day to be filled with children’s laughter as they enjoy the activities and each other.”
The impact on our social and emotional health was profound and mostly unrecognized, he said. He hopes this day can help undo some of that damage.
“Living through the pandemic will significantly impact all of our futures,” Mugabi said. “As the PCCF continues in its mission to recognize the special gifts within our children and allow them to discover their future, days like this one can affect us all in unimaginable ways.”
He believes reducing the impact of the trauma endured during the pandemic is an integral part of the healing process and can be accomplished through days like Super Fun Kids Event.
“We will be having fun with kids and families interacting with one another, encouraging community and family,” Mugabi said. “The importance of family and friends cannot be diminished, and helping rebuild those connections within our youth directly reduces the negative impacts of COVID-19.”
It can also help children learn to trust public spaces and activities, he said.

“You can still see the worry in places like elevators and public transportation,” Mugabi said. “We want to help our children learn that despite the concern during recent years, it is normal, important and fun to have days like this, where the community can come together and interact with each other in rewarding and memorable ways.”
“For our immigrant populations, that connection is even more important as they learn to navigate the country and culture,” he continued. “I hope immigrants, new and old come and enjoy the festivities and, most importantly, each other.”

Families & COVID19

A pandemic slows down the whole economy. People in many sectors lose jobs. Many parents will have lost their jobs momentarily due to closures of stores that started early 2020. Because of that, many will have found that they had less and less money for expenses such as hydro bills, groceries, mortgages, rent, car payments including insurance, utility bills in the case of condominiums including townhouses classified as condominiums, car repairs, gasoline, and household and personal items such as shoes, shampoo, and deodorant.

The Canadian government in particular offered a program called CERB, which equated to a deposit of 2000 dollars per month for a number of months into the accounts of eligible adults. Being eligible meant that one had lost income due to the pandemic and that one had made at least 5000 dollars the calendar year before. However, those who had gotten CERB were uncertain how it would manifest in taxing for future years. Perhaps the Canadian Revenue Agency would ask for money back in the future.

            Landlords were asked by the government not to evict tenants for a number of months last year on grounds of nonpayment of rent. However, in theory, landlords would still be able to find other reasons to evict tenants.

Many adults drove across provincial borders prior to the pandemic. That changed for many for instance when the Ontario-Quebec border closed. That change was bound up with the slowing of the Canadian economy and the loss of income for many adults. Also, adults that used to drive across the Canadian-US border or fly by plane across that border of course became prohibited from doing so when the pandemic started.

Many families are nuclear and made up of two parents and one or more children. A loss of employment for either one parent or both parents can mean a big difference in the family’s livelihood. If one parent had been working to support the other parent and children, a loss of work by that parent could be devastating. If both parents worked prior to the pandemic and one lost his or her job due to the pandemic, the pressure would be immense on the one who continues to work. He or she may even be pressured to take up more hours each week.

Work itself became a hassle for those who continued to work when the pandemic started. Special regulations had to be observed. Employees had to start wearing masks and follow special protocols to curb covid spread.

So, the pandemic has had a damaging effect on the livelihood of families.

 

 

Children & COVID19

The pandemic has had a damaging effect on the livelihood of children.

            Children who had once gone to school to interact with peers in person now have done so online for some periods of time when school buildings closed. This meant that the children whose parents could afford internet and gadgets for peer-to-peer interaction were better off than their poorer counterparts. Children from poorer families who had used the public library for internet and computer access became no longer able to do so when the pandemic started and local libraries closed.

            Children who lost parents or family members to the illness itself of course would also suffer in many ways. Losing a parent is a devastating event itself. But that is not the only thing a bereaved child faces. A bereaved child faces also potential poverty due to the loss of an employed parent. He or she faces also the loss of guidance in matters of morals and self-discipline that is so important for children. It is the parents that ask the children the hard questions that propel them towards social and academic success, as it is also the parents that show the children genuine love.

            The news of the pandemic itself also may cause confusion for some children. The news that so many are dying in the world due to the pandemic may be depressing for children.

            Staying home and using computers may be a detriment to children’s physical fitness. Being able to, say, play soccer or basketball in the schoolyard is priceless not only for a child’s social development but also for his or her physical development. Losing that opportunity means children have to put in extra effort to do physical exercise. Physical exercise for the sake of physical exercise is not fun. It is rather stultifying, and many will try to forgo it.

            Some children unfortunately get infected with the covid virus. The virus has been said to be a particular danger to the elderly. However, cases of debilitating illness in children due to the virus have also been reported.

            Some children are of Chinese descent but living in Canada. These children may be at increased risk of discrimination in the wake of the pandemic, as news in the West generally maintained that the virus had come from China. Of note, the news did not actually say that it was an established fact that the virus had originated in China. Of course, the virus could have been brought into China from elsewhere at the pandemic’s inception. The virus had only been speculated to have originated in China. Moreover, both the East and West agree that regardless of its origin, it had spread first in China. But, all that does not matter, because in the West, in the public mind, the origin of the virus is the city of Wuhan. So, many Chinese children (and adults as well, on that note) may be discriminated against particularly in light of the onset of the pandemic.
