#AttorneysWithHeart

We are #AttorneysWithHeart and as such care for those affected by road accidents.

Goukam Health

We have chosen as our beneficiary, Goukam Health, a community programme that facilitates the reintegration of children and adults with disabilities into their respective societies.  The creation of the programme is aimed at providing for survivors of road accidents who had sustained acquired brain injuries and were medically stable.  The primary health care system in South Africa no longer provides for the rehabilitation of brain-injured persons and they are returned to their families without support. Their workshop model affords the accident survivor the opportunity for inclusion into a day programme, skills training, behaviour modification, family education and social re-integration.

Primary goals

  • To teach socially appropriate behaviour
  • To facilitate and increase self-awareness
  • To teach an appropriate skill which may be transferred back to the community of origin
  • Reintegration of children and adults with disabilities into their respective societies.

Workshops

Workshops provide wood-work and upholstery, sewing and bag-making, interior finishes and home industries. The workshops provide the vital link between rehabilitation and community reintegration. A variety of skills are taught in the programme but it is also entrepreneurial in nature and a number of products are for sale to the general community.   This facilitates the empowerment of trauma victims. Central to the facilities is a budding project with organic vegetables, herbs and chickens.
