Brenda Bezuidenhout, a newly-retired teacher, has been a CHOC volunteer for several years. With her retirement and the time she now has, she has committed herself to leading a skills and spiritual development programme with parents at CHOC twice per week. Both of these activities are aimed at enriching parents who spend weeks and sometimes months at CHOC, whilst their child is being treated for cancer at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital.
The parents have shown great appreciation for this selfless gesture and as the saying goes, “Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time, they just have a heart.” This has been proven time and time again by our dedicated CHOC volunteers.
“To experience peace does not mean your life is always blissful. It means you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.”
