South Africa

  • volunteers needed in South Africa

    We am starting a homoeopathic mobile clinic and child and travel health centre. We alreday have a beautiful building in the heart of Cape Town which will be the centre and a Landrover Forward Control (an x-military ambulance) that will be the mobile clinic. The main focus of the project is to promote non-toxic treatment of diseases requiring immunisation for both humans and animals (particularly wildlife. There is an epidemic in Southern Africa of Malaria, TB and HIV. I have travelled throughout Africa by motorcycle, treating tropical diseases successfully with only non-toxic therapies and my daughter Ndyana (who has not been immunised) has been travelling through Sub-Saharan Africa since she was 4 weeks old. We did not sterilize the water nor was she given conventional malaria prophylactics. We require volunteers to manage the IT side of the project and others with fundraising experience to manage the fundraising side of things. I have been funding the project so far in acquiring the abovementioned, but we will need funds for the running of the project. I founded and financed a free homoeopathic clinic in Cape Town which ran successfully for 4 yours employing 4 homoeopaths. I have also founded a Montessori Pre-school. I have had work published and have been in various radio and television interviews. If you are interested in joining this unique project, please email your cv to, or fax to (+27)(-21)7623710, tel (+27)(-21)7623791 and postal address Dr Francesca Swainston, P.O. Box 1971, Cape Town, 8000.Africa needs you!

  • i would LOVE to help!!

    Dear Dr. Francesca Swainston,
    I am a 22 year old undergraduate student majoring in Psychology and minoring in art, along with an emphasis in French (I also speak Dutch because my family is from holland). i currently am working at a small health food store and am constantly learning about the homeopathic remedies that nature has to offer!!! I will be graduating in about a year or less and hope to find anorganization which needs volunteers (preferaably in a third world country where help is most needed...) Most organizations I have found only want highly qualified professionals and unfortunately I do not have much to offer in that aspect; but I do have the desire to help those in need. I would love to work under or assist someone who is making progress of some sort in an underpriveleged place. I think it is great what you have started in Africa and would like to offer my assistance at the start of 2001! I have worked with children all my life and am currently self-educating myself about the medicinal uses of plants. Please e-mail me and let me know if their are any positions which will become available in the next year!
    thank you!
