Health Care Consciousness and Education – A Visit from the Siloah Lutheran TB Hospital

At Pakamisa one of our philosophies is to promote the importance of health care to our staff and create space for health consciousness. Therefore, a well trained team of doctors and nurses from the Siloah Lutheran TB Hospital visited our Lodge to demonstrate the causes and effects of HIV / Aids, Tuberculosis and STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases). At Pakamisa we are committed to providing knowledge and education constantly to our staff .

Come and have a look how we do it!

On offer was space for personal consultations and the provision of medication.

An interview with a volunteer from our staff proved the success of this special event. “We really appreciated being involved. I have not seen this been done in Europe for HIV/ AIDs awareness. Sure, we practice safe sex, but that’s to protect us against STDs and unwanted pregnancies. There were some awkward moments during the lectures, but I was amazed how open everyone was and the number of questions that were asked.”
