History

The organisation started on 21.02.1998 when two patients of TB who were residing in Madibong Village were discharged from Jane Furse Hospital. These patients had to go to Mamakoko Cafe everyday for their daily treatments. We were motivated by the fact that some of these patients had to travel long distances, so we found it necessary to train volunteers for DOTS and this was the formation of Madibong DOTS, to make it possible for patients to take their treatments at home. In 2003 Madibong DOTS was then changes to Madibong Community Home Based Care because after this juncture we were no longer working with DOTS only but with other diseases and socio-economic problems in the community.
