Our dear colleague, Elna Welman (Director of Pietermaritzburg Mental Health Society), passed away unexpectedly after a short illness on Thursday, 11 August 2016.
Elna was well-loved and admired for her enduring commitment to persons with disabilities; she will always be remembered for her courageous and warm heart and especially her passion to help and support those in need of care.
We are all united in our grief and our memories of her incredible spirit.
URGENT NOTICE – SECTION 18A TAX CERTIFICATES
SARS has recently changed the numbering of Public Benefit Organisations reference numbers. The new PBO number of the SA Federation for Mental Health is PBO 130003099. Our PBO status has officially been re-confirmed in July 2016. Unfortunately we have had feedback from a number of donors whose Section 18A tax certificates for the 2015-2016 tax year have been rejected by SARS due to the old reference number being used.
We are grateful for the continuous support received by all our donors and apologise for the inconvenience caused.
The South African Mental Health Advocacy Movement (SAMHAM) invites persons with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities to attend the Empowerment Sessions that will be taking place in Limpopo from the 17th to the 25th of August. Family members, mental health care workers, stakeholders and the community are also welcome.
It is important to RSVP as there are LIMITED spaces available.
