Visit by European Burns Association (EBA)

Pictured here are members of the European Burns Association (EBA) with Faiza Achmat, Therapy Manager at SJH. Their visit was organised by the Phoenix Burns Foundation while they were in Cape Town to attend a two- day burns workshop organised by the Phoenix Foundation and the EBA. SJH was one of the facilities they visited prior to the workshop, because of the close working relationship we have with the Phoenix Foundation in providing step-down medical and rehabilitative care to burns survivors and support to their caregivers. They were very impressed with the facility and services on offer at our facility. One of the comments from them is that we do an amazing job in looking after the children in our care, Faiza said.
