Op Saterdag, 5 November 2016 word jy genooi na ’n familiefees!

Die Badisa-familie het, met die hulp van hul verskeie programme, kragte saamgesnoer ten einde ’n familie- en kosfees te Eaglevlei Landgoed, Stellenbosch aan te bied.

Die dag skop af met heerlike koffie en ’n familiepretloop van 5km deur die landgoed se wingerde, en ’n heerlike pannekoek wat by die eindstreep wag.

Badisa se eie programme sal kos, handwerk en lekkernye verkoop. Ons sal ook sorg vir vermaak vir die kleingoed asook musiek vir die hele gesin. Alles is ten bate van Badisa se maatskaplike dienslewering in verskeie gemeenskappe van die Wes-, Noord- en Oos-Kaap.

Carin van der Merwe, reeds 30 jaar lank ’n gesoute maatskaplike werker, vertel ons sy het op ‘n plaas in die Lichtenburg-distrik, Noordwes Provinsie groot geword. Sy onthou haar sorgvrye kinderjare by Lichtenburg Laer- en Hoërskool. Sy het wonderlike ouers gehad wat haar spesiale geleenthede, dog ferm leiding gegee het. Haar besluit om BA Regte by die Universiteit Stellenbosch te gaan studeer, is tydens haar eerste jaar herroep toe sy haar kursus na maatskaplike werk verander het. Sy was tot op hede nog nooit ’n dag spyt dat sy hierdie besluit geneem het nie.

Drug Awareness Week 24 – 28 June is there to remind us of the struggle so many still face with substance dependency – and the effects this has on family and society as a whole. You may know someone – particularly a child – who may be suffering because someone in their family is dependent on substances. This week is the perfect time to take a step and find a way to help.

Whether you come into contact with a child in this situation as a teacher, a friend, or a family relation, the key is to spot the signs that so often signal the trauma the child is experiencing. Once you know the signs, learn the approach, and then plan the actions you can take to make a difference in that child’s life.

It’s a one-on-one technique. You don’t need to be trained, you just need to learn the basic cautions and procedure. As you help one child at a time, you help to heal that young person’s distress, and they in turn can affect others. It’s a ripple effect – and the intervention of one can ultimately bring about change for many.

With International Nurses Day that took place on 12 May, we stopped to consider those unsung heroes who care for our aged population and the disabled. Often they are the only individuals who continue to make a difference in just One More person’s life.

Nursing requires a special range of qualities: Patience, respect, a friendly, caring approach and a sense of humour! A well-trained nurse is highly valued but sometimes it’s those who have an innate understanding of how people feel, that really bring this type of nursing into almost saintly status.

Ever stopped to consider how lucky you are to live in a time when your rights as a human being are protected by law? As we go about our daily lives, we rarely think that there was a time when mistreatment of people and travesties of justice were often the order of the day. But society today has made itself free through a number of fundamental considerations for human life. The right to equality as well as freedom and security of person are just the basic structure from which numerous rights flow.

Have you ever thought what it would feel like to enter a home and find a small, broken, dirty child? What it means to take that child, no matter how bad the circumstances, away from the only family they have ever known and place them with total strangers, just to keep them safe?

What about finding a parent, teenager or, even in some cases a young child in the stronghold of addiction, not being able to see past their next fix?

It is often said that a woman was not created from the superior part of man. Why?

So that she might not be above him, however also not from any inferior part, because she wasn’t meant to be below him to be trampled on. She was created from his side, from one of his ribs, so that she could be equal to him; and from a part near his heart, under his arms, to show that she should be affectionately loved by him, and should always remain under his care and protection. www.biblegateway.com

It has often been said that loneliness is the biggest disease of mankind.

Nowhere in our society is this more relevant than with our elderly.

When we think about the most basic needs of those who are frail, we consider their desire to still have worth, to retain their dignity, to make a contribution for as long as they possibly can, to be independent and to make a difference. It has been proven that our seniors make exceptional volunteers, greatly assist working families with child-rearing responsibilities and carry a wealth of life experience with them.
