UJ Riverlea Community Outreach Project / Programme


UJ Health Clinics


  • The fifth year and extended homeopathy students consult at two community outreach programmes; namely the Ennerdale and Soweto facilities.



  • The Soweto centre has been running since 2006 and at current location in 2018. It just distance from Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital at Palm Bible church, a community church based at Moroka, Dhlamini Soweto. During 2014, the clinic started to operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays afternoons due to high demand. Students consult an average of 30-35 patients every week.
  • The Ennerdale centre started to operate in 2004. It is situated in a school, Don Bosco Educational Projects that is run by Salesian sisters. The school caters for grade 1-7. The clinic runs on Thursdays and it is dominated by children even though it is open to the community of Mountain view, the surrounding area. The Department of Complementary Medicine organises a Christmas function for more than 300 disadvantaged children in Ennerdale every year. The students and staff do various fundraising projects, which enabled them to donate clothing and school shoes for the community.
