SADTU follows in Mandela’s footsteps

Mahlangu said the SADTU initiative happened during the Yellow week-Patient Experience of Care (PEC) where they measure the satisfaction rate of the users of the clinic.

Kwa-Thema – The South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU) Springs branch observed Mandela Day by cleaning the Kwa-Thema Main Clinic on Tuesday afternoon.

Branch chairperson Disco Seme said they got the cue from legend Nelson Mandela to love the community and always give back to it.

“We want united communities,” he said.

Seme said Mandela loved children and they would like to use this Mandela month to plead to sponsors and the private sector to provide bursaries to orphaned children and children of the missing middle class for tertiary education.

“We also like to plead with the private sector to provide dignity packs for our learners. If we could as SADTU, we would. However, we only depend on a stipend,” he said.

The clinic’s quality assurance officer Vuyelwa Mahlangu said they are overwhelmed by the love shown by SADTU and that this is a beginning of a fruitful relationship.

“The health and the education sector will be a good stakeholder for the community and the relationship has just started and will work well in taking care of the disadvantaged,” she said.

Mahlangu said the SADTU initiative happened during the Yellow Week-Patient Experience of Care (PEC) where they measure the satisfaction rate of the users of the clinic.

“One of the pillars of health is cleanliness. Having them coming during PEC week and cleaning the facility means a lot to us as a clinic,” she concluded.
