During National Disability Rights Awareness Month the Eastern Cape Branch reached out to communities to educate and empower persons with and affected by epilepsy and people with other disabilities. We partnered with the Eastern Cape Department of Social Development in the Buffalo City Metro Service Office, the Buffalo City Metro District Office and the Amatole District Office, as well as Deafsa, and Rehab.

Mthobisi Madlala (Eastern Cape Coordinator) facilitated an Advocacy and Human Rights Training Workshop for community and support group members (people with epilepsy and other disabilities). During this workshop individuals were able to link their experiences with the content of the training programme.

Mthobisi also facilitated the involvement of people with epilepsy in the BCM Disability Forum with Mandla Bottoman (a support group member) elected to serve as organiser and Ede Tyopo (Branch Board member) as secretary.
