African Traditional Medicine Day 31 August

E-mail Print PDF

Friday is the 10th African Traditional Medicine Day. It is a day commemorated globally by the WHO (World Health Organisation) & no it's not a public holiday!!

It's 10 years on and yet there is still no significant progress that has been made in South Africa when it comes to integrating traditional medicine into the healthcare of the country.  

Unfortunately this is still one area where the dominant culture is treated like a marginal culture! I struggle to understand how this is, but, it is what it is! Mine ( and I hope yours as well as you read this) is to make it what we want it to be.  A South Africa where I am assured of quality care irrespective of which mode of healthcare I choose!

Philani! Remember your strength & own it! MAD-G

Where has our Ubuntu gone?

E-mail Print PDF

The past few weeks have made me question a few things about us and our Ubuntu. What is wrong with us? Text books are being destroyed for what? To score political points at the expense of our children! 

Why is it that we have forgotten our own culture where my child was your child, your child mine? When we would give to less fortunate members of our communities? When the elderly where revered for their wisdom and guidance? We need to relook our selves and the society that is now ours. Ubuntu needs to reside in our hearts, in our homes and our communities.  

Our communities, with their ill treatment of children, grannies, are what we have created. We need to stop and start again. Ubuntu is needed!
