DWF hosts Eli Lilly volunteers

15 November 2014

A team of international Lilly ambassadors spent two weeks at the Donald Woods Centre during October and November as part of Lilly’s Connecting Hearts Abroad global service programme.

The nine ambassadors, representing six different countries, spent time familiarising themselves with the Lilly-funded Health in Every Hut programme, and learning about the innovative interventions of the Donald Woods Centre broadly in the Mbashe region of Transkei.

Divided into three working groups, the Lilly ambassadors were also able to utilise their individual skill sets to make constructive contributions to the Health in Every Hut programme through resource development and video production.

Universally impressed with HiEH, all singled out the CHOWs for their diligence, commitment and empathy with their communities.
