As Wia we have been
· .comforting those undergoing chemo treatments at JHB Gen Oncology Department with our Cancer Support Team,
· .we have also embarked in the counselling of HIV/Aids affected and infected patients through our HIV Peer Educators,
· .we have held awareness campaigns on abuse against women and children extended to human trafficking awareness
And we felt a great empathy to the many women and children who are still grieving from traumatic situations of abuse. We needed to do something; we need to sharpen our skills to help them better.
This is what our members from JHB and Cape Town did by enrolling to a workshop for trauma counselling with the Rape Crisis Unit and as a result of this knowledge and techniques we will be officially launching our Save a Tamar Group in January 2012.
This group is meant to those who need support, comfort and tools to overcome traumatic experiences and maybe do not have the courage to look for advice with other organisations outside the church boundaries.
Be known that this group is open to non-members of the UCKG and we will handle private counselling and group sections.
For now, we will be hosting this beautiful work in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban but it will soon expand to the rest of the country.
You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for personal counselling.
