SPEAKING BOOKS

Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted. That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way healthcare information is delivered to low literacy communities.

The customizable 16-page book, read by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood by everyone across the world.

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 100+ titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 45 countries.

TWO WORLDS MEET HERE!

THE meeting of two different worlds can benefit everybody.
One is purely African and the other is Western.
These Mpumalanga zangoma mix Western medication with their traditional herbs. They are not just zangoma but also professional health workers.
Some work as assistant nurses and some as NGO counsellors.
Most of these woman graduated from Mpumalanga and Gauteng nursing colleges and have diplomas and certificates in nursing.
Emmah Duma (58) told Daily Sun: ?We work at local clinics and NGOs as nurses and counsellors ? and at home as zangoma in our spare time.? Emmah said she always refers all her clients to hospitals when necessary.
Now the South African Depression and Anxiety Group have handed over certificates of mental health to this group of zangoma after they were given a workshop on how to handle mental problems and mental health textbooks to study and refer to in their practice.
The event was held at Lynneville township in Witbank over the weekend.
?Zangoma need to know that their mental patients need moral support as well as herbs or ikutwasa,? said senior trainer Chevonne Powell.
If you have a mental crisis, please call 011 262 6427 or 0800 567 567.
