WUCT sent 2 members of our home based care team, Joseph Mphala and Nancy Mkundlu, to join MSAT South’s World TB Day event at Imizamo Yethu squatter camp in Hout Bay on Friday 22 March ’13.
Living Hope did HIV testing in 3 tents. There was an overwhelming response – in total, 82 clients were screened (31 females and 51 males) in 3 hours! In fact it was such a success that we hope to be going there again later in the year.
Nancy assisted with BMI screening, and Joseph distributed TB information leaflets, condoms and masks, together with other members of MSAT South.
MSAT (Multi-Sectoral Action Team) is a City of Cape Town initiative to get NPO’s working together in the Southern Sub-District to network and run awareness events to fight the spread of HIV/Aids and TB.
