Legacy Fund

Speak to us about becoming a monthly debit order donor or about leaving a legacy (bequest) to The Black Sash.

Your contribution, big or small, ensures that we are able to invest in a legacy fund to support the ongoing needs of our beneficiaries and the communities we serve.

We are hoping to raise R160 000 through recruiting 160 Friends of the Sash who will each commit to donate R1000 for the year.

That is as little as R100 a month!

You too can join a growing group of individuals who care about making Human Rights Real!

Western Cape Consultative Health Workshops, 23-24 August 2010

This report on the Western Cape Health Consultative workshop is the 3rd of nine provincial reports that documents an initial conceptualization of citizen values on national health system reform.

It took place from 23 to 24 August 2010 in Cape Town. Approximately 55 participants from each of the 5 District municipalities and the Cape Metro were represented. Participants were chosen on the basis of geographic and sectoral representation. Attendees were sent by community based organisations (such as paralegal advice offices); health affiliated organisations and NGO’s. 

What some participants said about the Consultative Workshop:

"On behalf of our communities, please allow me this opportunity to commend you and Your Team for a job WELL DONE. Attending your two [day] workshop on health really and truly opened the door for our Community Health Committees to continue putting pressure on our Health Authorities to honour their commitment to deliver Quality Health Care Services to our communities. Your two day workshop really gave our communities hope for the future. Thank you very much for opening your doors for active community participation. It is really and truly greatly appreciated. I am very well aware of the fact that we cannot perform any miracles but your two day workshop have proved that when we all network, collaborate and join hands and commit ourselves to work together in harmony then our integrated intervention can make a meaningful difference in all our communities.....Yours in Health and Partnerships.
