Wedge Gardens Treatment Centre has started Diversity Training for the Wedge team, every second week, to empower its employees to understand and respect each other and become more culturally sensitive to its patients’ needs.

Rebecca Mlokhoti and Hlumela Anderson recently shared their Xhosa culture, traditions, milestones and expectations with the team.

“As an Afrikaans woman, it was enlightening and interesting to hear about the Xhosa ways of growing and living,” says Wedge social worker Karen Griessel.

“The aim is to ultimately roll out the programme out to patients too,” says Wedge Gardens Manager Adèl Grobbelaar.
