“The Health Team will travel to farming and rural communities in Clanwilliam, Zoar, Swellendam and Slanghoek (near Rawsonville) where they will provide health care services (including health promotion and training of local community health workers).

Most of the clients are farmworkers who are constituents of our project partners: Trust for Community Outreach and Education.

Postscript: see pics of the trip here.

We have partnered with Independent Newspapers – who will publicise our anniversary events.

Everyone is invited to SHAWCO’s Health event launch on Thursday, 3 November 2018 (15h00-16h00) at the IDM building at UCT Medical Campus.

Speakers at the event include Prof Bongani Mayosi, Prof Crain Soudien, Mercia Andrews and Lungisa Huna (Directors at TCOE), and SHAWCO Health leadership.”
