Experiences of Children’s Care Received at Windhoek Residential Child Care Facilities, Namibia  [PDF]
Brigitte Nshimyimana, Marieta Van der Vyver, Joan M. Kloppers
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2015.59081
Abstract: The caring is a very important aspect for every child’s well-being and development. A child should be cared for by biological parents or extended family members when possible. In the absence of these two possibilities, other options are in place such as Residential Child Care Facilities (RCCFs). However, RCCFs are generally regarded as last resorts, as it is noted that they have a negative impact on the well-being of the children. Caregivers in RCCFs should ensure that these children are being adequately cared for as they substitute their biological or extended families. It is also a child’s rights to be provided love, care and support coupled with a sense of belonging, recognition and independence. However, children without or inadequate parental care are likely to be vulnerable from all forms of violence. The aim of this qualitative, exploratory, descriptive, contextual and phenomenological study was to explore and describe the children’s experiences regarding the care received at the Residential Child Care Facilities and to provide recommendations regarding research findings. Data were collected through one on one in-depth interviews and Tech method was used to analyze data. The results of the study show that children in RCCFs have experienced both positive and negative care. The care is experienced through relationships with staff in the facilities, provision of their basic needs, knowledge of their cultural identity and their adult future preparation once they leave the facilities. Thus, it is recommended that a conducive environment that contributes to the quality of care for children in RCCFs be established, taking into consideration human resources capacity, policy guidelines and standards in place while providing care to those children.

The future prospects for the protection of human rights in South Africa*
J. D. van der Vyver
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1977, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v42i6.1227
Abstract: It must by now be obvious to every intelligence, I presume, hat the winds of change which have been sweeping across the continent of Africa over the last two decades, are presently also raging south of the Limpopo. Ever since Mr Harold Macmillan, the then prime minister of the United Kingdom, in his historic address of 3 February 1960 to the South African parliament, directed our attention to the political significance of the prevail- ing tide of national consciousness of the African peoples, the while man in Africa has felt the increasing chill of the side- el ects of those winds so accurately predicted by him. Not only have we seen our western allies turning their backs on the White regime of South Africa, but on the domestic scene we have also experienced the murmurs of the African breeze and the unrest and even violence which signified an impatient urge on the part of the less privileged sections of the South African population for a better deal in what is their fatherland too.
Die kommunistiese staatsteorie en -praktyk
J. D. van der Vyver
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1964, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v31i11.1489
Abstract: Die kommunisme is ’n besondere uitloper van die universalistiese uitgangspunt in die wysbegeerte. Aan die hand van sy fundamentele grondslag kan die kommu- nisme nader tipeer word as ’n variasie van die sogenaam- de staatlike sosialisme. Hierdie tipering verg vervolgens verduideliking.
Stoker se denke aangaande die reg en geregtigheid
J. D. van der Vyver
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1994, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v59i3&4.693
Abstract: Stoker was already of pensionable age when he first developed an interest in the problems o f jurisprudence, although he had no academic training in the discipline o f law. For that reason, his exposition o f jurisprudential notions and ideas in many respects lacks a proper understanding of the exact components o f legal concepts and distinctions familiar to the legally trained mind. The general exposition to be found in his philosophy pertaining to the law, human rights and the legal order nevertheless reflects amazing insights and original thought. The main thrust o f his jurisprudence remained focused upon uncovering the essential nature of the juridical aspect of reality, which he defined as "service in office" ("ampsbediening "): Every human person has a particular calling in life and is required by God to fulfil that calling. The ontic law (the ‘real law' as it would have been had there been no sin) lays down the conditions that would make it possible for a person to accomplish her earthly avocation. An internal analysis would expose distinct 'cosmic dimensions’ of the law, human rights and the legal order. The juridical aspect per se constitutes aparticular modality of individual and social ideostantic ‘things’; its dynamic aspect may be uncovered by perceiving the law from the perspective of the cosmic dimension o f occurrences; and its elements of ‘good’ and 'bad' will be brought to light by analysing the law, human rights and the legal order with a view to the cosmic dimension of values. Stoker’s perception of the ontic law is comparable to the notion of natural law - redesigned by Stoker, though, from a decidedly Christian perspective.
The Dakar conference on Namibia and human rights

Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1976, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v41i5&6.1253
Abstract: The international conference on "Namibia and Human Rights" that took place in Dakar, Senegal on 5 to 8 January 1976 was, to the best of my knowledge, the idea of dr Karel Vasak in his capacity as president of the International Institute of Human Rights of Strasbourg, France, who planned the conference - again to the best of my knowledge - in close collaboration with mr Seán MacBride, the United Nations Commissioner for Namibia. The Government of the Republic of Senegal acted as host for the conference, the conference was formally sponsored by mr Seán MacBride, and it was officially organized by the International Institute of Human Rights. The International Commission of Jurists and the International Association of Democratic Lawyers also lent their support to the organizers of the conference.
Positive and negative emotional responses to work-related trauma of intensive care nurses in private health care facilities
D Elkonin, L van der Vyver
Health SA Gesondheid , 2011,
Abstract: Intensive care nursing is a stressful occupation and nurses are continually subjected to both primary and secondary trauma. Responses may be positive in the form of compassion satisfaction, or negative in the form of compassion fatigue. However, nurses tend to deny the negative impact of secondary trauma which leads to the silencing response and subsequent burnout. This article explores and describes the presence of these emotions and the relationships between them. A quantitative approach with a non-probability sampling method was used. The sample consisted of 30 registered nurses working in private health care intensive care units in East London, Eastern Cape. Data were gathered via the Professional Quality of Life Scale: Compassion Satisfaction and Fatigue Subscales – Revision IV (ProQOL – R-IV) and the Silencing Response Scale and were analysed according to descriptive statistics and correlation coefficients. Findings suggest a high risk for compassion fatigue, a moderate risk for burnout and the silencing response and moderate potential for compassion satisfaction. A marked negative relationship was found between compassion satisfaction and burnout and a substantial positive relationship between compassion fatigue and burnout, as well as compassion fatigue and the silencing response. Intensiewesorgverpleging is ‘n stresvolle beroep en verpleegsters word gedurig aan beide primêre en sekondêre trauma blootgestel. Reaksie hierop kan óf positief wees, in die vorm van empatie-tevredenheid, óf negatief, in die vorm van empatie-uitputting. Verpleegsters is egter geneig om die negatiewe impak van sekondêre trauma te ontken, wat gevolglik tot stilswye en uitbranding kan lei. Hierdie artikel ondersoek en beskryf die teenwoordigheid en verwantskap tussen hierdie emosies. ‘n Kwantitatiewe benadering met ‘n nie-waarskynlikheidsteekproefmetode is gebruik. Die steekproef het bestaan uit 30 geregistreerde verpleegsters wat in privaat-intensiewesorgeenhede in Oos-Londen in die Oos-Kaap werk. Data is met behulp van die vierde hersiening van die ’Professional Quality of Life Scale: Compassion Satisfaction and Fatigue Subscales’ en die ’Silencing Response Scale’ ingevorder en verwerk met verwysing na beskrywende statistieke en korrelasieko ffisiente. Die resultate dui op ‘n ho risiko vir empatie-uitputting, ‘n matige risiko vir uitbranding en die stilswye-reaksie, sowel as ‘n matige potensiaal vir empatie-tevredenheid. ‘n Beduidende negatiewe verwantskap blyk tussen empatie-tevredenheid en uitbranding te bestaan, terwyl ‘n aansienlik positiewe verwantskap tussen empatie-uitputting en uitbranding en empatieuitputting en die stilswye-reaksie bestaan.
Menseregte en menswaardigheid
J.D. van der Vyver
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2005, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v70i3.279
Abstract: Human rights and human dignity The concept of human rights includes a variety of entitlements which are commonly subdivided into natural rights of the individual, civil and political rights, economic, social and cultural rights and solidarity rights. It has come to be generally accepted that human rights are based on the principle of human dignity. However, there are instances where human dignity is not recognised as the basic norm of a bill of rights (for example in the USA), and from a Christian perspective human dignity does not represent the core element of being human. Dooyeweerd described the human person as above all being endowed par excellence with religiosity, while Timothy Jackson singled out “sanctity” as the most fundamental basis of human rights protection. This contribution focuses on the need for a Scriptural foundation of human rights.
Abraham Kuyper en die reg op selfbeskikking van bevolkingsgroepe
J.D. van der Vyver
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2006, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v71i1.239
Abstract: Abraham Kuyper and the right to self-determination of peoples Sphere sovereignty as a principle that regulates the mutual relationships among different social institutions originated from the philosophy of John Althusius, and this idea is found again in one form or another in the theories of various German political and legal philosophers. However, the descriptive name of this principle derives from the Dutch politician, Guillaume Groen van Prinsterer, who under the influence of Julius Stahl, confined the principle to church-state relationships. The special contribution of Abraham Kuyper was to extend sphere sovereignty to relationships among other social institutions. However, Kuyper did not distinguish precisely between the kinds of “circles” which in principle qualify for sphere sovereignty, and in the process he also included social communities among those with sphere sovereignty. An accurate distinction among social institutions that do qualify for sphere sovereignty and (unstructured) social communities that do not, derived from the philosophy of the cosmonomic idea of Herman Dooyeweerd. Kuyper’s perception of sphere sovereignty of social communities does correspond with the right to self-determination of ethnic, religious and linguistic communities as currently defined in international law. This right, however, does not include the right to secession from an existing state, but affords to the communities concerned the right to promote their culture, to testify to and practise their religion and to speak and apply their language without state interference.
