Woza Moya is a community-based NGO located in the Ofafa Valley of rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Hazel Bond and Robin Vanderplank, TRE® Providers in Durban, came in contact with the Director of Woza Moya, Mrs Sue Hedden and invited me to  join them for a TRE Introduction of introducing management, staff and community workers at Woza Moya.

The TRE Introduction took place on June 1st 2016. We spent a wonderful day with 22 members and/or staff and community workers, some of whom traveled a long way to be there. Besides receiving information about TRE® and the nature of traumatic experience, the group participated in two TRE® sessions – with much laughter, surprise and lively participation in feedback.

The impact of trauma on rural communities is acknowledged and well documented, yet the resources and means of helping those affected are scarce. Fortunately and thanks to 16 years of continuous work of the NGO, a network of community based care has changed the life of many people. We hope to add TRE® to the toolbox of those who work within the NGO, both for themselves as well as taking it to the people who need it the most.
