  • Having an ear problem, I continuously went to the day hospital and several doctors who did not take my complaint seriously. If you go to the day hospital, you sit there for long hours. The clinic organised a voluntary doctor to look at my ears, referring me to Tygerberg hospital. I had my first operation done and am now on the road to recovery.

  • Being able to access basic health care services like family planning has been the best thing that has happened to the community of Site 5 in Dunoon through the Shap’Left Project. May the Cipla Foundation continue assisting disadvantaged communities in our country.
