Lethubuntu health care services was born in 1976, out of the practical expose to the psychiatric illness, most of them being caused by the stressful situations they were exposed to and never got the relevant support systems, they then break down to serious situations which could have been avoided by interventions.

After obtaining a qualification in psychiatric nursing (1998) I dedicated myself to the community work

In 1985 I started a day care centre for the mental disabilities, under the umbrella of the South African Red Cross society; I stated with 5 children operating in the Methodist church in Tsakane Brakpan. In 1987 the centre was registered with the department of education, the site for the school was allocated; build with the help of sponsors.

In 1988 the centre was handed over to the community, catering for moderate mental disabilities

COUNSELLING: Psycho social support to the relatives to cope with the situation. The centre was officially launched in 1988 April named Matsidiso day care centre, MRS Florence Matona being the “founder member”.

IN 1989 JUNE I joined Sam Michelle home for the mental disabled, specifically to train the staff on care and training of the mentally disabled, I further started training auxiliary nursing to their staff to cope with medical problems of their clients and applied for the license of training from the South African nursing council
