TB hospital celebrates health-awareness day

Employees from Barberton TB Specialised hospital.

The employees wore traditional regalia, and came together to celebrate the day under the theme “Culture Diversity at Work”.
According to Winnie Msibi, the organiser of the awareness programmes, the purpose of the events is to promote health in the working area.
“The hospital aligns any national event and gives it a theme. They then celebrate it at the hospital. During the day of celebration, we invite expert speakers on the subject matter to educate our employees,” said Msibi.
