In response to the families who have been displaced by the fires in the Houtbay area, Western Cape Health Minister, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo,with CIPLA Foundation visited the community to announce an intervention which will be rolled out for the next month.

The CIPLA Foundation will provide the displaced communities with Primary Healthcare services. Western Cape Government: Health will look at the need of the community to determine what services should be offered. Part of those services will be basic healthcare services and the provision of personal care products.

The Department is looking for a site with the help of the community where a temporary unit will be erected and will be manned by a nursing sister and shop assistant and the CIPLA Foundation will also donate R20 000 worth of medical stock.

“During such a crisis most families are unable to gather their children’s clinic cards, or medication.” said Mbombo.
