Gauteng South Region
This region is headed by a Regional Manager (RM) with a staff complement comprising social workers, social auxiliary workers, house supervisors, house support assistants, regional coordinator, fundraising coordinator, programme coordinator and drivers.
We recognise the inevitable turmoil to family life when a child faces vigorous and often lengthy treatment and thus extend comprehensive support to the families. Services rendered by the region include emotional support by CHOC social workers and social auxiliary workers based at the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital (CMJAH) and Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital (CHBAH). They walk the cancer journey with the families from diagnosis to the end of treatment or end of life. Less formal emotional support is also provided through support groups such as survivor groups, parent-supporting-parent, bereavement support and interactive play groups in the wards.
This region has three houses that are a home away from home for children battling cancer, and their parents or caregivers. One home is situated in Saxonwold and two in Diepkloof, Soweto. The regional office is based at the Saxonwold house servicing Gauteng and North West Province. The child and parent/caregiver stay in these houses at no cost to them and can be with other families facing similar circumstances. It is a safe and welcoming environment with caring and understanding staff, a place where new friendships are formed.
To ensure that no child abandons treatment due to lack of transport we offer children and families transport and transport grants. Basic necessities such as care bags, nutritional support (food parcels) and bereavement support (funeral funds) are also made available to the families and children.
The region creates awareness of childhood cancer and CHOC programmes locally through marketing campaigns and events. Additional services such as ward comforts, recreational activities and medical support is also offered as needed and as resources allow.
