The letter of appreciation from hospital manager: Zethu Xapile
Re: Breath Water and Sound Course
This serves to confirm that the Breath Water and Sound Course was run at the Mitchell’s Plain CHC from the 1st – 4th December 2011. 104 people attended the course.
Mitchell’s Plain is situated about 30km outside Cape Town. It is an area that has about 40% unemployment rate, riddle with gangsters and substance abuse. The community members are trying hard to fight the use of alcohol and other substances. Some of our clients at the facility are somehow angry about all the difficult circumstances they live under because of this. It is with great pleasure to inform you that the course came at the right time and was of enormous benefit to both the facility and the community at large.
I would like to thank the organization for making it possible for us to benefit from this course. From what the participants say it looks like for some of them life will never be the same after this course. It gave hope to those that were lost in hopelessness, lost in despair, joy to those who were surrounded by misery, peace to those whose life was in turmoil.
I would be delighted if the staff of Mitchell’s Plain CHC would also have a chance to experience. It was indeed an experience of a life time for our clients.
Thank you for making this possible.
A special word of thanks to the teachers: Dr. Parusha Pillay and Ms. Vassi Pillay.
