NGO Promotes Medical Circumcision

Team leader for male circumcision mobilisers in the Harry Gwala District, Thandeka Zondo, has a mammoth task of convincing men in the Harry Gwala District to undergo medical circumcision, a topic that is still taboo in most areas under the district as it is dominated by rural areas.
 
Zondo, from Bulwer, is the leader of five mobilisers working for CareWorks, a non-governmental organisation that makes a tangible impact on the degenerative effects that HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis have on individuals, organisations and communities.
