9th scene: Why I volunteer


“There are indeed many reasons for doing this kind of work.


[Dr. Roux Martinez
Medical Doctor in Cape Town
assisting in trauma- and
transplant surgery]

First of all, i think, what my first reason is, is for being a doctor and that is something I always wanted to do and all these years working in a high tech technology in modern hospitals I’ve tried to be a doctor now.

I’ve really tried to do all of that to actually care for the patient behind all the tests and behind all the x-rays and behind all the fancy technology and the first time I came here, I really came to this place because there was bad weather and I could not go and sit on the beach that day.

I walked into this place and I found this heaven of care.”
