I'm assisting Dr Judith Ludwick, local psychiatrist, with a fund raising campaign in aid of community mental health in the Helderberg basin.
In October we are having a big concert, a multicultural Mass, at Lourensford Estate in Somerset West, with a guest choir from Asanda Village. The profit from the concert will go towards the work of the Helderberg Counselling Centre in Somerset West where various counsellors donate their time to see people from the community who are going through emotionally challenging times. Services include counselling, workshops, support groups, mediation, and play-based therapy with children. All services are offered by volunteers who include lay counsellors, doctors, psychologists, and a psychiatrist, with the aim to enable people on their mental health journey.
Our dream is to have this Suiderkruismis concert on an annual basis for our long term project, The Luhani Community Clinic (NPO), a desperately needed in-patient community mental health facility in the Helderberg area. But for right now we are appealing to the Helderberg community and businesses to help us with donations towards the expenses of this concert on 13 October, so that as much as possible of the money raised by ticket sales can go towards the outreach work of the Helderberg Counselling Centre.
Attached please find the concert poster and banking details of the Helderberg Counselling Centre. We will really appreciate it, if you could contribute to this great cause and if you could also share the poster on your Facebook page.
