Because we are #AttorneysWithHeart, we care for those affected by road accidents extends beyond our legal services
Our social responsibility beneficiary is Goukam Health, a community programme that facilitates the reintegration of children and adults with disabilities into their respective societies. The programme is aimed at providing for survivors of road accidents who sustained acquired brain injuries and were left medically unstable. The primary healthcare system in South Africa no longer provides for the rehabilitation of brain-injured persons which means they are returned to their families without support.
Goukam Health’s workshop model affords the accident survivor the opportunity for inclusion into a day programme, skills training, behaviour modification, family education and social re-integration.
Workshops provide skills for woodwork and upholstery, sewing and bag-making, interior finishes and home industries. This is a 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.
Teaching socially appropriate behaviour. Facilitating and increasing self-awareness. Teaching an appropriate skill which may be transferred back to the community of origin. Reintegration of children and adults with disabilities into their respective societies.
